Santa Clara incised vase with kokopelli design

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    This pot by Nancy Youngblood was made in 1995. Already recognized as a supremely talented artist, Nancy works in the tradition of her Pueblo and her family. Margaret Tafoya’s deep carving and commitment to the traditions of pottery-making at Santa Clara, along with influences from the work of Grace Medicine Flower and Teresita Naranjo inspired her (http://www.nancyyoungbloodinc.com/biography.html)

    This pot is, to my eye, one of the most beautiful and fascinating pots by Nancy Youngblood that I have ever seen. The main figure carved in the pot is that of kokopelli playing his flute. Kokopelli obviously represents the spirit of music and joy. He is also considered a symbol of fertility and well-being.

    In this pot, Nancy uses highly polished slip as well as matte slip, both of which enhance the designs. The quality of her carving and design is supreme. Nancy clearly is expanding the traditional uses of matte and polished slips. She also references the sun and moon as well the mesas with exquisite geometric designs that enhance the kokopelli imagery.
