Williams, Lorraine – Square Mouth Jar with Star and Mountain Designs
This is a tall traditional jar by Lorraine Williams. It is a long neck and a low, sharp shoulder. The neck is squared off at the mouth. The neck of the jar has a star pattern. Around the shoulder are mountain and river designs. 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, “LW”. Lorraine has won numerous awards for her pottery and been featured in books such as “A Legacy of Generations”.
