Indigenous Pottery/New Mexico
If you love ceramics or appreciate the First People's culture, here is an esteemed earthen container created by a New Mexican indigenous potter, awaiting a home with you!
I found this pottery at a gathering of First Peoples in Northwest Florida (a "pow wow"), and among the many indigenous vendors, this ceramic container was one of many sold by by a Dine artist from New Mexico.
The piece is whell spun. I believe it is base painted white and then painted in terracotta and grey colors in the style of old New Mexican pottery. The top is festooned with a turtle, the symbol of longevity and luck in many Native American cultures.
I purchased this piece in 1998.
