KENAITZE – ALASKAN NATIVE
Hello, my name is Jadyn Wilson and I live in the lovely town of Weaverville in Trinity Country. I am a 16 year old sophomore that goes to Trinity High and participates in a number of clubs and sports teams. I have lived with my Grandparents most of my life while my dad works in San Francisco and my Mom I have not seen in a number of years. I am part of the Kenaitze tribe native from Alaska on my moms side. I am very happy to share my art and I hope you like it.
My art piece is what I call a “creative handle mug” The design on the front is supposed to symbolize the stitching together of the sky (blue glaze) with the earth (red/brown glaze).
My art piece is often called a “tripod mug” because of how the base is three points instead of the whole bottom. The red is supposed to symbolize strength and the blue on the inside is to symbolize self control and calmness.
