Navasie, Joy “Frogwoman” – Large Jar with Hopi Birds (1980’s)
This large jar by Joy “Frog Woman” Navasie is a classic shape for her pottery. It has a very high shoulder and a short neck. The high shoulder allows for all the design work to be seen. There are four panels of designs and each opposing panel has a similar pattern. There are classic Hopi bird, cloud and rain designs. The jar is slipped with the white clay and then painted with a red clay slips and bee-weed (black). The red is a deeper red clay she began to use in the 1980’s. The jar is very finely painted with delicate lines. The jar is signed on the bottom with her Frog Hallmark. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There is one small area of fugitive black, which can be seen in the photos.
