Shutiva-Hista, Jackie – Corrugated Water Jar
Jackie Shutiva-Hista (b. 1961) is a daughter of noted potter Stella Shutiva. She learned to make pottery from her mother who was known for her corrugated pottery. This water jar is corrugated around the neck. “Corrugated” is a technique which simply means that the coils are left exposed and they are pressed down using a tool or the potter’s finger. Jackie typically uses her finger to impress the clay, creating this stylistic appearance Stella’s corrugated style of pottery was inspired by pre-historic style corrugated vessels. The remainder of the jar is polished white. The jar is signed on the bottom, “J. Shutiva-Hista”.
