FREIDA POLEAHLA (?-1995)

HOPI JAR circa 1965


Some potters go through life in the shadow of the better-publicized, but lately Freida has started to receive some recognition. We recently saw an 11” diameter black on red shallow bowl from about this same period with a hefty four-figure price tag. She was active from the 1950s on and, although she doesn’t get much mention, her daughter Colleen rates a long entry in Gregory Schaaf’s Hopi-Tewa Pottery (1998). This is in excellent condition and is beautifully made and painted, polished as carefully on the inside as it is on the outside.


8-1/2” diameter x 4-5/8” high


Condition excellent
