Williams, Lorraine – Large Tan Incised Seedpot with Star Design
This is a striking large seedpot jar by Lorraine Williams. It is a wide, sharp shoulder and a gently sloping shoulder. The seedjar has a very tightly incised star pattern on the top. Around the edge are a mountain and river design in red. The simplicity of color and complexity of the designs are striking on this piece. 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. It 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”.
