Evelyn Poolheco signatureEvelyn Poolheco was a potter from the First Mesa Tewa Village at Hopi Pueblo.  She was a Hopi-Tewa of the Spider Clan and is reported as having been an active potter between 1960 and 1980.  She specialized in black-on-yellow and black-on-red pottery, and her favorite design was that of a parrot.  Her name has also been recorded as Pootheco and Poothico, but this jar is clearly signed Evelyn Poolheco.

This jar or vase is somewhat unusual in vessel shape for Hopi-Tewa pottery in that it is shaped as intended to be used as a flower vase, although it would be shameful to put water in it because that would eventually mar the surface.  An insert of a glass vase would make it feasible to use for flowers should one choose to do so.

The design is a graceful flowing arch of a Sikyatki-inspired abstract parrot.  It is repeated on front and back.


Condition: this Hopi Black on Red Cylindrical Vase is in original condition

Provenance: from the collection of a family from Colorado Springs, Colorado
