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.
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.
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.
A bowl such as this is used to hold ceremonial cornmeal in a Zuni home. It is known by other names, such as cloud bowl, cornmeal bowl and prayer bowl. The twisted clay handle is fabulous. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply. About 6 1/4" tall, 6 1/2" wide and 5 3/4" deep.
Roxanne Seoutewa & Carlos Laate
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.
Kimo DeCora, Isleta
Kimo DeCora's Dragonfly bowl is hand-formed of natural clay, and hand-painted with natural mineral paints. We love the detail of the compound eyes. Kimo painted a background to suggest this messenger is resting on the water, he then surrounded it with pueblo inspired designs. More of a shallow dish shape it is about 2 7/8" in diameter and 1/2" tall, signed by the artist.
