Navajo artists Kenneth and Irene White are a prime example of a unique backstory, having both begun their artistry as silversmith, then taking up pottery making as a hobby. Their recognizable style of pottery typically features imprints from stamping tools, and often showcases Yeibichai dancers. This lovely, small vase is a perfect example of the marriage of the stamp work with visuals of Yei and Yeibichai dancers. The piece, featuring vibrant colors including green, blue, and red juxtaposed with black, depicts both Yei and Yeibichai separated by corn stalks along the entirety of the body. Just below the rim, the vase is stamped and painted with step patterns, and, traditional in Navajo pottery, the whole vase is coated in pine pitch to give it a glossy finish. 6 1/8″ tall x 4 5/8″ wide.
