ABOUT

We fell in love with this fabulous modernist sculpture the minute we saw it. It is signed and dated by the artist Jack Black 1985. This beautiful Navajo Native American woman is portrayed relaxing and reclining with her long straight hair flowing over her shoulder and down her arm. The main body of the piece is glazed in gorgeous blue-green mottled glaze with the face, hands, and one foot left unglazed in the natural clay color, as is typical for the artist. Her hair is textured and glazed a light brown matte glaze. She is very striking and calls out for you to reach out and touch her.

Jack Black was a highly regarded sculpture artist and member of the Navajo tribe. He was born in Galveston, Texas but moved to Arizona opening a studio in Sedona in 1984. It was Black’s practice to sketch his ideas after observing and being inspired by the colors and peoples in the desert. He would then sculpt them in clay. Molds were made from that original and the figures cast in stoneware. Each piece was cleaned and detailed by hand making none identical. His figures are understated, timeless, beautiful, and wonderful to gaze upon. Jack Black passed in 2002.

No matter your design style you will love this ceramic sculpture. Make it yours!
