Fine Little Fawn Navasie-garcia Hopi Polychrome Pot:
Fawn 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. This is one of 2 pieces of Indian/Native American pottery I have up for sale. They came from a Nashville estate and I was told the owner had purchased them in the 1970s, although he may have bought some of them later than that.
Condition: There is a shallow glaze chip on the rim. There are some small spots of glaze missing in one spot. There are some kind of dirty places on the body of the pot. Please see the photos for a complete estimate of the condition.
