Description

A beautifully shaped seed pot in a buff on red decorated with geometric feathers and designs.

Geraldine specializes in handmade, hand painted two toned polychrome, stone polished traditional Jemez pottery. She gathers her clay from within the hills of the Jemez Pueblo. She breaks the clumps of clay down to a fine powder form and mixes with water and other natural pigments. Then, Geraldine begins forming the clay to the desired shape and size by the hand coiling method. Once the pot is dry she sands her formed pottery to the desired weight. She hand paints patterns of feathers and geometric designs among many other patterns. She fires her pottery outdoors, the traditional way of her ancestors.

Condition: Fine- original condition. The piece has one very small spall on the lower side.
Provenance: Acquired from an estate in New Mexico
