Sadie Adams' Hopi name is Flower Woman and she signed her pottery with a flower symbol.  She was a Hopi-Tewa of the Kachina/Parrot Clans and lived in the Tewa village at First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation.

She was recognized by collectors and her contemporaries as an outstanding potter. She had a long, successful career making and selling pottery on the reservation and supported her family in this manner following the death of her husband.

She was very versatile in the pottery she made—jars, bowls, lamps, tiles, cookie jars, plates, cups and saucers—that it is no wonder that she has such large collector enthusiasts today.  She made something for everybody's budget and desires.

This jar is one of her major masterpieces.  It is large, beautifully formed, and exquisitely painted with two images of a full version of a magnificent bird.  The wings are triangular and have stepped edges.  The body is stippled at the chest and the tail feathers are outlined in dark brown.

This jar came with a lid, which is available, however, I think it is much more attractive as a jar when the lid is removed, so we are presenting it in that manner.

Flower Hallmark - Sadie Adams (1905-1995) Flower WomanThe jar is signed with the artist’s flower hallmark.


Condition: very good condition with some touch up to the dark brown paint.  If a potter touches up the paint after the jar has been fired, the touch-up paint is slightly lighter in tone.
