CHERIE HINES (?– )

MOJAVE BLACK ON RED JAR 1988


We bought this at the tribal museum in Parker, Arizona because it gave us a glimpse of hope for Mojave pottery's future. We were told that Cherie lived in Phoenix, but she was trying to learn the old pottery techniques. She had a way to go—this is heavy to the point of clunkiness—but it has a nice size and it's pleasing to look at. We can only hope that Cherie and other younger potters keep at it, and that a new generation of Mojave potters will revive the art now that casino money is making life easier for all of them. With that hopei n mind, we put this on page 117 of our Second Edition of Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni.
