Avelia & Anderson Jamie Peynetsa
Zuni Pueblo potter Avelia Peynetsa collaborated with her son Anderson Jamie Peynetsa, to create this remarkable, all hand-formed and hand-painted Dragonfly and tadpole (baby Frog) seed pottery. Creatures such as the dragonfly and tadpoles (frog) are important symbols to the Zunis because they represent life-giving water. Frogs or tadpoles often appear on prayer pottery bowls since many of the Zuni prayers and dances ask for water in the form of rain or snow. This exquisite natural clay and mineral paints seed pottery is approximately 5" tall and 7 1/4" in diameter. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.
Alan E. Lasiloo
Skillfully all hand-formed and hand-painted, with natural clay and mineral paints, Priscilla Peynetsa's "Lizard & Dragonflies" large pottery bowl is a wonderful gathering of Dragonfly, Lizard, tadpole and rainbird creatures. The tadpoles squiggle on the top rim of this piece. A small sun design is present next to one of the dragonflies. We adore how Priscilla made the lizard in three-dimensions, with its friendly head coming up from the side of the bowl. About 8 1/4" tall, 8" wide and 8 1/4" deep. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.
Kimo DeCora, Isleta
Protectively flying overhead is Kimo DeCora's Eagle, all hand-painted with mineral paints on a small, hand-formed natural clay bowl. This glorious raptor is surrounded by stirring geometric designs, while a circular sun or moon is behind it. About 3 1/4" in diameter and 3/4" tall. Signed by the artist.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.
Agnes Peynetsa's all hand-coiled and hand-painted, with natural clay and mineral paints, pottery bowl features creatures like tadpoles, a Frog in three dimension, perhaps a horned Lizard or an anthropomorphic creature, and Dragonfly.

Glendora Fragua, Jemez
Glendora Fragua's fabulous abstract and geometric pottery pays tribute to those that are unseen but surround us. The geometric and pueblo-inspired designs are hand painted in a precise and beautiful manner with natural mineral paint plus metallic paint accents. The natural clay piece is hand-coiled and has a tiny pin hole opening at the bottom. Glendora has also incorporated her identifying signature of a corn stalk incised in the bottom of the piece. Glendora is part of the Corn Clan at Jemez Pueblo. The egg shaped piece tapers towards the bottom and measures about 3" tall with a diameter of about 2" at the widest point.
Kimo DeCora's Frog bowl is hand-formed of natural clay, and hand-painted with natural mineral paints.

Bowls like this are used in Zuni to hold sacred cornmeal to be used in ceremonies and blessings. Darla Westika made this one with a carrying handle. Hand built using the coil technique Darla used natural mineral pigments to paint Dragonfly and Zuni rain bird designs, both symbols of water. The stepped shape of the bowl represents rain giving clouds. About 5 1/4" tall and 7 1/2" wide. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.
