A classic Pueblo motif , beautifully expressed in his own way by a member of the talented Yepa family.
The incised feathers are placed horizontally, rather than vertically, around the shoulder of the piece.
Larger in scale than usual, they blend ethereally into the delicate clay hue.
The hand made, softly warm, native Jemez clay seems to glow.
The contrast between textured and stone-burnished areas is subtle and delicate.
Totally hand made, this lovely olla introduces an artist new to us, who continues his family’s tradition of high quality and admirable beauty in pottery.
And at a price that makes it easy to collect his work!
