Williams, Lorraine – Large Square Long Neck Jar with Weaving Desigs
This is a classic jar by Lorraine Williams. It is a long neck and a low shoulder with a sharp edge. The neck of the jar is square at the rim The surface of the piece is incised with rug designs that extend from the rim to the shoulder. There are additional star designs below the shoulder of the jar. The background area is textured. The jar has been traditionally fired to create the surface coloration. After the piece is fired it is covered in pine pitch, which is typical of all traditional Navajo pottery harkening back to when it was utilitarian. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “LW”. Lorraine has won numerous awards for her pottery and been featured in books such as “A Legacy of Generations”.
