INDIVIDUA HOPI POTTERY
Frogwoman, Joy Navasie Hopi Pottery
This beautiful handmade pot was hand coiled and hand painted by one of the most famous potters of our time, Joy "Frogwoman" Navasie from the Hopi Reservation. Her mother, Paqua Naha (First Frogwoman), is credited with pioneering this style of white slip Hopi pottery. Joy was instructed in pottery making by her mother and has carried on the legacy. She continued developing the technique to its present state of near perfection, and has instructed her family members in the skills involved in making these exquisite creations. This piece features traditional geometric designs that are derived from ancient decorations found on potsherds around the Hopi reservation.
The pot measures 5.25 inches high by 5.5 inches in diameter, and is signed by Joy's characteristic frog figure.
