Joy Navasie (1919 2012) is among the most famous and prolific Hopi-Tewa potters. She is known as Frog Woman. This name was also carried by her mother, famous and innovative pottery artist Paqua Naha. Her mother taught her Hopi traditions and pottery making. Joy Navasie began her career around 1935, and she began signing her pottery with a Frog Hallmark around 1939 or 1940.
Paqua Naha signed her pottery with a frog having toes; but Joy Navasie used a frog with webbed feet. Joy most often created works in the black and red on white slip style pottery.Many credit her mother, Paqua Naha, with developing white ware pottery in the early 1950s. This case is in excellent condition, measures approximate 7.5 tall and 4 3/4 wide. Wonderful example by Joy Frog Woman Navasie.
