T24-1.jpgNative American Hopi-Tewa Hand Coiled Pottery Vase by Joy Navasie

Joy Navasie (1919 - 2012) Second Frog Woman. Her given Hopi-Tewa name is Yellow Flower and she is among the most famous of Hopi-Tewa potters.  She learned the skill from her famous mother, Paqua Naha, the first Frog Woman. Joy signed most of her pots with the frog hallmark, except she drew webbed toes on her frogs while her mother drew short, straight toes.

Joy's work was mostly done using black and red on white. The Navasie and Naha families specialize in white ware which is considered by Hopi potters to be the most difficult pottery to make because the fire has to be very hot and the pots require much more protection from smoke and smudging.

The detail on this piece is exceptional. Black on black with the incised design and two turtles sculpted in relief is a fine example of the work that has made master potter, Reynalda Quezada, famous.

The Mata Ortiz pottery is inspired by the designs of the ancient Casas Grandes pueblo people and, as in the ancient tradition, incorporates only local materials found in the nearby mountains; from the coveted clays to the rich oxides used in the paints that adorn the completed pots.

T32-1.jpgPubelo Santa Clara Black Seed Pot Hand-Coiled Sienna Spot with Sgraffito Kokopelli, Butterfly, Bird in Geometric Design by Candelaria Suazo

Candelaria Suazo has been making pottery for approximately 20 years. She specializes in sgrafitto two-tone pots. She gets her clay from Santa Clara Pueblo and hand-coils her pieces. After the pots have dried, she polishes them with a polishing stone and red slip. The pots are then fired outdoors in a traditional firing pit, using “cow patties” and horse manure.

Candelaria is a full-blooded Indian from Santa Clara and San Juan Pueblos. She was first inspired by her mother, Santanita Suazo and her sisters, Margie Naranjo, the late Martha Huangooah, Mae Tapia and Shirley Duran. Delores Curran and Geri Naranjo, her relatives, have also greatly influenced her work.

T33-1.jpgPubelo Santa Clara Redware Hand-Coiled Seed Pot with Incised Butterfly Design by Grace Medicine Flower
 
Grace Medicine Flower is an elegant beauty among Santa Clara potters who continues to be one of the most innovative and influential potters working today. Her intricately designed butterflies and hummingbirds remind the viewer of our delicate relationship with nature. Each piece is a reflection of her connection to the earth and the Clay Lady and the traditional and history of the Santa Clara Pueblo. As a child, Grace was surrounded by potters such as her mother Agapita, her father Camilio Tafoya and her aunt, Margaret Tafoya. She began to work in clay making traditionally styled pottery. In the late 1960’s, Grace and her brother Joseph were among the first on Santa Clara to begin using the sgraffito technique to carve their designs into the clay. Amazingly, Grace uses a knife or a specially sharpened nail to carve and create her masterpieces.  All of her work is made in the traditional coil method and then pit fired outside. Grace Medicine Flower has been greatly honored throughout her career for her innovative work. She has been visited by Jackie Kennedy-Onassis, invited to the White House and has pieces in collections and museums around the world. To own one of her pieces it to own a part of history. While she produces less than 15 pieces a year, the demand among collectors for her new pieces continues to rise with each new year and new innovation.
