Unique piece - Pueblo Jemez Pottery

This clay pottery colored with natural pigments represents a Koshari (Kachina clown), an essential element of some celebrations. As an embodiment of the ancestors, we easily recognize him thanks to its black and white stripes, reminding the skeleton. 

This clown is the funny element of these too-serious (in his opinion) ceremonies. He gently disrupts the rituals by talking loudly, laughing hard, eating noisily and making fun of some Hopi habits. 


Dimensions (H x l) in inches: 5" x 3,3"

    • Unisex One of a Kind piece
Navajo pendant. Double Naja pendant in mat silver with ends in hand shape. 
This pendant is made with the Tufa Cast technique, one of the oldest processes used by the Navajos:
The artist takes a mold made of volcanic stone (tufa) and divises it in two parts. In the first part, he carves a design of his choice, melts silver in, and tightly covers it with the second part of the mold. Once the silver is hard, the mold eventually breaks, making this piece a unique item. This technique creates a jewel of traditionnal rough aspect on which we can clearly see the beautiful lumps of tufa stone. 
The Naja pendant reminds the horse shoe shape and is on many Navajo necklaces as a talisman for protection.
