Faye Tso (1933-2004) was one of the first Navajo potters to decorate her pottery with imagry, as most Navajo pottery was with little decoration. She often applied images of corn maidens, lizards, and dancers to the surface of the clay. This tall water jar has raised corn husks on two sides. The vintage jar was traditionally fired and is covered at the end with pinon pitch. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Faye B Tso”. It is in very good condition with no chips or cracks.
