This is a classic Acoma seed pot, traditional in every way.
The artist is a Patricio and married into the Concho family, so is doubly related to Acoma pottery aristocracy.
With a shapely form, an easy size to display, and a dramatic polychrome design, this pot commands admiring attention.
The bold fine-lines on the bottom half refer to rainfall, very good luck for the desert farmers of Acoma, and are an age-old characteristic of Acoma pottery.
The red clay slip and plant-derived black, designs on the top half resemble plant and lightning forms.
Well-formed, well designed, and striking, this is a true bargain, since the price is as vintage as the pot.
Congratulations to whoever is fastest, to acquire this fine example of older Acoma pottery!
