Kevin Trancosa, Circa 1997

Kevin Trancosa was from San Felipe Pueblo. He had a very short career making pottery from 1990-97. Each piece was coil built and made using clay from San Felipe Pueblo. He began with red micaceous clay and then started to work with a white micaceous clay. His exceptional designs and forms were exceptional. He won numerous awards during his lifetime and his work can be found in museums nationwide. His peak in making pottery was from 1996-8 and there remain few of his important pieces which still come back to the market.

Trancosa, Kevin – Large Jar with Geometrics and Lid (1997)

Kevin Trancosa was one of the few potters working at San Felipe Pueblo.  I was lucky to work with him from 1996-7 in Scottsdale.  Each piece was coil built and made from San Felipe clay.  In 1997 he began working with white micaceous clay.  The result was a striking appearance with black painted designs and a micaceous surface.  This jar is painted with a mountain design which extends from the base to the neck.  Note how small the design is when it reaches the neck!  The lid is also mica slipped and has a face and tablita.  Kevin only made a few of these that I remember.  This particular piece was purchased from the gallery.   The piece is from 1997 and it is signed on the bottom in the clay.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  While he had a brief career, his work remains important among San Felipe potters.ote how small the design is when it reaches the neck!  The lid is also mica slipped and has a face and tablita.  Kevin only made a few of these that I remember, and typically they were for one of the art shows in which exhibited.  The piece is from 1997 and it is signed on the bottom in the clay.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  While he had a brief career, his work remains important among San Felipe potters.
