This jar by Al Q is wonderful. He has depicted and sculpted a head of a Long Hair Katsina. It is so elegant. The polishing is superlative, you can see from the photos how smooth and even the sheen is. The colors of the clay, with its orange hue is so beautiful, I asked Al about it. He replied,” Hopi has several hues of orange, but some have shrinkage problems. This orange clay is a mixture of Hopi and an orange from Oklahoma where my uncle (Hopi/passed) used to live, near Vinita, OK “ It makes for an absolutely stunning piece of art.
