Small Black Plate


Item Number: DR 2056
Pueblo: San Ildefonso Pueblo
Artist: Talyn Kewanletzema
Medium: Clay and pigment
Age: 2015

This is one of Talyn’s first attempts at making pottery. His highly polished plate is signed on the back in his handwriting. He has painted a large dragonfly on the plate surrounded by smaller dragonflies. Dragonflies are important symbol since they signify water, which is so critical to survival.

I feel certain we will see many more pieces of pottery from this emerging young potter as he continues to grow and improve his skills. After all, he is only five years old, and doing quite well.

Condition: Excellent – original condition
Provenance: Purchased from the artist’s grandfather during Indian Market in Santa Fe
