Setalla, Stetson – Large Tile with Hummingbird Design
Stetson Setalla is a son of noted potter Pauline Setalla and the brother of Dee Setalla and Gwen Setalla. This large tile is fully polished. It has a very intricately painted hummingbird design. It is design that was often used on the pottery of Paqua Navasie and Joy Navasie, his relatives. It is a tightly painted tile with additional colors of red and brown clay to accent the design. The black is bee-weed and there are strong blushes from the firing. It is signed on the back “S. Setalla” and rain cloud.
