Artist Signature - Nancy Youngblood (1955- ) Yellow AspenThere is probably no one who does not know who Nancy Youngblood is but, if that is not the case, then here is a short introduction to her.  She is the granddaughter of Margaret Tafoya and daughter of Mela Youngblood.  She is a master crafts person and certainly one of the most famous younger potters of today.  Nancy is known for her patience in making the most precise and perfect pottery.  She spares no effort in producing the perfect pot.  For more information on her, check the more detailed biography on our website by clicking on her name above.

This stone-polished black jar, with 32 vertically-placed eagle feathers surrounding the rim, is typical of the intense amount of work she puts into each creation.  Each of these feathers necessitated polishing individually, leaving the valley between parallel feathers in a matte state. Below the feathers, at mid-body, is an Avanyu that wraps around the body.  The eye and mouth are etched into the clay and lightning bolts from the mouth.  The lower half of the jar, the Avanyu and each individual feather were polished to a beautiful sheen and the firing of the pot was perfect.

The jar is signed Nancy Youngblood 2002 on the underside.

 

Condition:  the jar is in original condition.

Provenance:  from the estate of a former client and collector from Irvine, California
