Santa Clara - Sgraffito Hummingbird Pot by Gwen Tafoya (Santa Clara) SOLD

<< Previous in Pottery Next in Pottery >>
Price: $155.00
SOLD - Please call us for more information
Item Number: PUHP235
This very unique pot by Santa Clara artist Gwen Tafoya features floral and hummingbird sgraffito designs and inlaid turquoise and coral beads upon a blackened clay pot.

Pottery from the Santa Clara Pueblo is created with the handmade coiling technique where clay coils are wedged together to form a shape. The pottery is coated with a slip and polished with very smooth stones to achieve the shiny and smooth look. Deep carved designs as well as fine etching/carving into the pot (sgraffito) are used. The same red clay and techniques are used for both the redware and the blackware with the blackness of the pottery being achieved by smothering the firing pit at the end of the firing process.
