Description

Graceful curvilinear motifs echo this jar's gentle shape.  Feathers floating through the air, wafting on nature's breezes, come to mind.

About the Artist (1951-2007) A member of the Kachina Clan, this Tewa artist has been actively creating pottery from the 1970's forward. She is the granddaughter of the First Frog Woman; daughter of Joy Navasie, wife of Jim Harrison.  

Marianne Navasie typically signed her pottery with a frog and tadpole symbol.

Navasie respected traditional clay gathering and firing, fashioning her creations using coils of hand-formed clay ropes.

She is cited in all major books referencing potters from Hopi.  Her awards stem from her participation in American Indian Art Fairs throughout the Southwest.
