Navasie, Charles – Jar with Sikyatki Birds (1990s)
Charles Navasie is a grandson of noted potter Joy “Frogwoman” Navasie and the son of Loretta Navasie. This jar is thin-walled and has a round shoulder and a slightly turned-out rim. It is painted with bee-weed and a deep red clay slip. The jar has Sikyatki style birds on two sides. Separating them are bird tail designs. They are tightly painted and perfectly match the shape of the jar. It was traditionally fired. It is signed on the bottom with his stylized frog hallmark. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
