Description: Traditional Hopi hand coiled Cylinder Jar by Delaine "Dee" Tootsie Chee (Sand Girl). It has 2 Eagles painted on one side and a Water Dike design on the other. Dee uses all natural material for her pottery including bee-weed and cedar plant greens for paint and uses a yucca brush to paint her designs. She fires her pottery outdoors using sheep dung. She also mixes different colors of clay to create a "marbled" look to her pots which is highly unique. Dee is the granddaughter of the Chief of the First Mesa Ned Nayatewa & Norma Adams. She signs "D. Tootsie/ Asah" with a Roadrunner motif below to represent her Roadrunner/Asah Clan.
