Sahme, Jean – Jar with Pottery Shard Base

4"w x 3.5"h

$ 575.00

Jean Sahme is a daughter of noted potter Priscilla Nampeyo and a descendant of Nampeyo of Hano. This jar has a wind pattern painted around the shoulder.  Below the shoulder is a complex shard design.  Each of the sections has a different design and they are painted with bee-weed for the black and two different clay slips.  The red slip is polished and the burgundy is matte.  The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom with her hallmark and a corn plant (for Corn Clan).  While Jean no longer makes pottery, there is wonderful creativity in each of her pieces!
