Signed By Pahponee Native American Pottery Kickapoo And Potawatomi Nations
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. This beautiful pot is a classic storage jar style, common to many indigenous people, constructed in the traditional coiling method of natural red clay and primitive-fired outside using buffalo dung.
Exposing the pot to the raw flames and smoke creates fire-clouds with free-form dark and varied colors giving it a one-of-a-kind finish. Art is about telling stories she says. I let the fire have its way and then watch the story it will tell. 2008 Primitive petroglyph-style images of animals and dancers are incised around the piece to add to the story.
