$ 800.00

Jimmy Wilson (b. 1935)  lives in Leupp, Arizona. He and his wife make pottery with Navajo (Diné) images from Creation Stories drawn on their surface; sometimes colored. Wilson makes shallow, incised geometric designs of Navajo people on his vessels. This canteen is coil-built and incised with designs.  One side has a Rainbow Yei and rising sun.  The other side has a moon design with rain clouds. The designs are not just tightly etched but also have areas of texture.  The jar was traditionally fired and covered in pinon-pitch.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jimmy Wilson”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
