Fine Little Fawn Navasie-garcia Hopi Polychrome Pot For Sale
Navasie-Garcia, formerly “Little Fawn", was born in 1959 into the Hopi
reservation. She was inspired to continue the family tradition of making
pottery by her late mother, the famous "Eunice (original Fawn)
Navasie". Eunice taught Fawn the fundamentals of traditional Hopi pottery
making. Early on, Fawn specialized in the white slip pottery her mother taught
her to make which, according to Fawn, is much more difficult. Fawn has been making pottery since 1979 and
specializes in elegant polychrome buff or yellow slipped pottery. Fawn coils a
wide variety of shapes like wedding vases, egg shaped pots and bowls. Her
designs originate from the Sikyatki Ruins (yellow earth, it's the name of a
former village at the Hopi reservation located two miles north of First Mesa).
This pot is signed “Little Fawn.” It
measures about 5“ tall and 5-1/2“ wide.
It weighs about 1-1/4 pounds.
