Deer with Heartline Pot
Known for his innovative, contemporary pottery, this young artist demonstrates that he is just as able to follow Zuni tradition.
Using the native white clay, and the age-old designs of a deer and geometric shapes, he has made an elegant tribute to his artistic and spiritual roots.
His own creative spirit is seen in the flowing curves and graceful shapes of the painted motifs, and the beautiful form of the piece itself.
Notice how the designs emphasize, and are integrated with, the form of the olla.
Strikingly handsome in its own right, this is an interesting companion piece, and contrast, to one of Alan’s signature contemporary pots.
