Jaycee Nahohai's parents are renowned potters Randy Nahohai (d) and Rowena Him. He's the eldest of their four sons, growing up at Zuni totally submersed in traditional pottery making. In high school, he studied pottery with Zuni teacher Gabriel Paloma. Later he attended Arizona State University's New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences in Tempe. In 2005, he won a Heard Museum blue ribbon for his pottery. His ongoing pottery works are highly sought after and incredibly gorgeous.
Elegantly hand-formed and hand-painted, of natural clay and mineral slips, plus a touch of reflective and golden micaceous paint, is Jaycee's Frog pendant. It's suspended from a length of black cotton cord accompanied by several handmade clay beads. Amazing webbed feet are seen on the underside of this fabulous amphibian pendant, that itself is about 2 1/2" long without the beads, and is 1 1/2" wide.
Charles Martinez, Jr.
This necklace is a show stopper! Charles Martinez, Jr. carved a beautiful Bear from the spiral of a melon shell, a very large type of sea snail. On the shell he overlaid an alternating heartline of red coral. A wonderful Dragonfly friend is incised on the bear. This bear pendant is about 2 1/2" from nose to tail and 1 1/4" long, with a red coral eye. Above the bear are several other carvings, all of them carry their own unique personality. Highest on the necklace are two Beavers, one is carved of luscious mother of pearl shell, the other of Picasso marble. There are two Eagles, again one is mother of pearl shell but the other is a rich green serpentine. There is a Frog of Picasso marble and a Badger of red coral. Just above the bear pendant are two graceful birds of mother of pearl shell. Each animal has inlaid eyes of black jet or bright turquoise and range in size from 3/4" to 1 1/2" long. With a secure threaded clasp this necklace is 23" long. Signed by the artist.
