Pahponee, whose name means Snow Woman is one of todays most renowned contemporary Native American Potters. Her work, over the years, has won many, many distinguished awards in such venues as Santa Fe Indian Market, Red Earth, and Heard Museum Indian Fair as well as inclusion in numerous museums and collections worldwide. Of Kickapoo/Potawatomi (Great Lakes Area) descent, she began working in clay in 1982.
Her personal bio from her Facebook page says it best. The inspiration for Pahponee to learn about pottery making came from a life changing experience.
She was taken to see a White Buffalo mother and her White Buffalo calf. White Buffalo are sacred to Native people. It was an auspicious occasion for her to be in their presence. After their meeting, Pahponee had a dream about a White Buffalo pottery vessel. She would keep dreaming of this one specific pot and other beautiful pots.But she did not know how to make them. This narrative could almost be a description of this very pot! Hand formed from natural white clay, this stunning piece measures approximately 3.75 inches tall by 9 inches diameter and, as one of her earlier works, it is part of her personal history, and, as such, is obviously of great value.
