Awesome! This is an amazing jar from Jason. It is coil built and painted with native clay slips. The jar is part of Jason’s series on the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. Here the Pueblo warrior is defending a girl from the Conquistadors. In the background there is billowing smoke and the burning church. During the Pueblo Revolt the Pueblo people, led by Po’ Pay, defeated the Spanish and drove them from the Rio Grande region. The painting on the jar is tightly executed and note the details in the figures. The colors are all natural clay slips and the piece is traditionally fired.
This tile is part of his Corn Maiden series which features young women in traditional dress for the Corn Dance and placing them in a modern context. This tile has a young Corn Maiden dancer who is taking time at the end of the dance to read through one of the “Tewa Tales of Suspense” comics. Jason has used one of his iconic images from his “Tales of Suspense” series of tiles for the cover of the comic and incidentally it is one of the only ones that has had only a woman on the cover. Note the traditional raincloud which is in the corner and the detail on the cloak and tablita! There is also a TV antennae dish on one of the pueblo building, which for Jason is always a nod to St. Claire, the patron Saint of Santa Clara Pueblo and also television. Each piece is a hand built clay tile, made from native clay. All of the colors are derived from Native clay.
This tile is is entitled, “Hopi Princess” and it follows in a series of smaller tiles where Jason has girls in traditional dress with their dreams in a thought cloud. Here he has a young Hopi girl with her hair tied up on the sides in the traditional buns. She is dreaming of being Princess Lei from Star Wars. Note the kiva ladder in the background and the detail in the earrings and the dress. These tiles are always a wonderful blend of the traditional and the modern world. Each piece is a hand built clay tile, made from native clay. All of the colors are derived from Native clay.
This bowl is fully polished and etched with one of Gloria’s more realistic scenes. There are seven buffalo on this piece. Each of the buffalo is detailed with design and there are additional cloud and lightning designs surrounding them. There is an additional white clay slip used as part of the lightning design in the sky. This bowl is very highly polished and fired a deep red. It also won a second prize for miniatures at the 2014 Heard Indian Market.
