Joy Navasie (aka second Frog Woman, "Yellow Flower")

Native American


8.25 x 3.625 x 3.625 in.
Gift of Hilda P. Bernards

Joy learned traditional Hopi pottery techniques from her mother including finding the clay and cleaning it, molding, coiling the pottery, slipping, polishing, painting, and firing it out of doors, preferably in sheep dung. Joy is known as the 2nd Frog Woman and her mother Paqua as the 1st Frog Woman and both signed their work with a frog illustration. Joy’s color symbolically represents different parts of her subject, which she abstracted into simplified shapes.
