Zuni Pueblo. English Pronunciation: "Zoo-nee" Traditional Name: SHE-WE-NA A Zuni Legend tells the story of the parrot and the crow, each of whom presents and egg to the Zuni women to decide which one they will keep. The women choose the egg of the crow because of its wonderful turquoise color. The Zuni love of color is reflected everywhere in the3ir daily lives, as well as in their ceremonies. While comparatively little pottery is made by Zuni craftsmen, they have a tradition of beautiful work in clay and still use their work in ceremonies. The murals of Alex Seowtewa in the Mission Church of Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe in the plaza of the Pueblo are remarkable examples of Indian painting at its best. They depict the history and the culture of the Zuni people and demonstrate once more the Zuni genius in the use of color. The church itself is a good example of traditional Pueblo architecture. One of the most famous of the Kachina dances, Shalako, is held every December in the Zuni Pueblo, to celebrate the end of the old and the beginning of the New Year, and to bless all of the houses of the Pueblo erected during the year.

Namingha, Les – “Urban” Jar

Namingha, Les – Hopi Shards Jar

This is a large jar by Les Namingha focuses on traditional Hopi-Tewa motifs.  The shoulder of the jar is fully painted with geometric “shard” patterns. They vary from checkerboard to hatchwork rain patterns and bird wings.  They are painted with bee-weed (black) and highlighted with a red clay slip.  Les has added his own variations with the small pointilism dots in red and black across the surface.  The final design has a very modernist appearance and yet the Hopi clay and firing maintain that traditional feel.  The top 3/4 of the jar (above the line) is polished, while the bottom is matte.  This creates a great textural feel to the piece when it is held.  It is also reminiscent of the work of Les’s aunt, Dextra Quotskuyva.  She often made pieces which were half polished and half matte.  The bottom has a fully pointilism design.  The traditional firing has created strong blushes across the surface of the jar.  The complexity of this piece is perfect for this shape, which gives lots of “canvas space” for the design.   Les is a descendant of Nampeyo and learned to make pottery from his aunt Dextra Quotskuyva.  It is signed on the bottom.

Folwell, Susan & Les Namingha – “Corn Maiden: Earth Mother” Jar

Susan Folwell (Santa Clara )and Les Namingha (Hopi-Tewa/Zuni) collaborated together for the first time on a series of vessels in a show entitled “Corn:Maiden:Cultures” in 2015. The concept for the exhibition was that the Corn Maiden in Pueblo culture can also be found as a primal female archetype in cultures throughout the world.  There is play back and forth on these vessels as the multi-cultural figures are placed within a Pueblo context as the “Corn Maiden”, who brings the corn, the harvest and life.  This jar has been in an exhibit at the Museum of Indian Art and Culture since 2016.

This large jar was made by Les.  The designs painted by Susan on two sides show a Hopi maiden and a Pueblo maiden.  Her idea was to leave the faces empty, so that they did not represent just one person, but all women.  The two women represent the Pueblo and Hopi ancestry of Les and Susan. Playing from Susan’s more realistic portrayals, Les painted a more modern version of the women on the other two sides.  The angular shape of this vessel, made from Zuni clay, is unusual but also perfect for this important imagery.  In many ways, this powerful jar brings together the ideas of womanhood, femininity, modernism and the continuing importance of the Corn Maiden concept in Pueblo culture.  The dark brown background works perfectly for this intense jar.  Check out more of their exceptional collaborative pottery in the book, “Spoken Through Clay”.

Namingha, Les – Sikyatki Sunrise Canteen

This is a exceptional large jar by Les Namingha.  Les is a descendant of Nampeyo and learned to make pottery from his aunt Dextra Quotskuyva.  This jar is one of his famous shapes, as it is inspired by a canteen, but reformed with a wider surface for more design.  One side of the jar has a Sikyatki (Hopi pottery from the 1400’s) bird with extended wings. The colors are all reminiscent of Hopi with the black and red and intricate patterns in the body of the piece. The circles are like the reflections of light at sunrise.  As the jar is turned there is the dramatic painted section.  It is a complex compilation of Hopi designs which encompass most of the surface of the jar.  The setting of the white clay and painted surface adds to the dramatic effect.  There is something both modern and very ancient about this jar!  It is signed on the bottom.

Namingha, Les – “Zuni Animals Jar” Jar

This is a an awesome jar by Les Namingha.  It’s the shape, texture and design which all mesh perfectly to make for a fascinating piece.  Les says about this jar:

“This jar is from an ongoing Zuni jar series in which I make the pots look old through a process of simulating an aged or relic look.  However, new methods and materials are used to create the “relics”.

The design ideas came from an 1880’s Zuni polychrome clay drum that was painted with depictions of snakes, dragonflies, spotted bears and either bobcats or mountain lions.  These designs have now been placed on a jar with a much smaller opening which makes it dissimilar to the ceremonial purpose of the original model pot.”

Of course, in addition, this jar makes one think of the Zuni “ceremonial” vessels sold to the Indian Art Fund in the 1930’s which ended up being fakes.  But here, Les has more beautifully revised and revived old designs and created a new form for their expression.  As well, the painting of the snakes and especially the bobcats are perfect for Les’s style.  They look ancient and modern at the same time.  So yeah.  It’s awesome!  Les is a descendant of Nampeyo and learned to make pottery from his aunt Dextra Quotskuyva.  It is signed on the bottom.

August 18, Pasatiempo Review

“Charles S. King’s new book, Spoken Through Clay: Native Pottery in the Southwest, The Eric S. Dobkin Collection, is spectacularly heavy —which is a problem from a practical standpoint, because once you open it, you won’t want to put it down. With dreamy tintype artist portraits by Diné photographer Will Wilson, dazzlingly crisp images from Addison Doty, and intimate first-person essays written by dozens of artists, the book is a visually delicious, intellectually consuming foray into historic and contemporary Southwestern pottery. In short, prepare to swoon.

If you’re thinking of this as a coffee-table book, you’ll need to imagine a decently sized coffee table. The book is more than a foot tall and, when opened, two feet wide, but its outsize appearance belies the often delicate beauty of its contents: hundreds of individual pieces of pottery from Eric S. Dobkin’s exquisitely curated collection — arguably the largest and most important of its kind. Gallery owner, author, and Pueblo pottery expert King designed Spoken Through Clay to be approachable for those unfamiliar with Native American pottery. “In the age of social media, I wanted to make the book both visually striking and personal,” King said. The book opens with essays by King, Dobkin, and curator Peter Held, who calls clay “the most archival of materials … seductive, sensuous, responsive, geologic, and malleable.”

“I wanted the end result of the book to be that the reader would connect with the artists in a personal way, beyond just the art, and understand the time it takes to become an artist, to achieve success,” King said. Sprawling yet intimate, Spoken Through Clay introduces its readers not just to the beauty of Southwestern pottery but also to the fascinating stories of the people who make it.Iris McLister, Pasatiempo

Spoken Through Clay features the pottery of iconic Native American artists from historic potters Nampeyo and Maria Martinez, to contemporary potters Tammy Garcia, Virgil Ortiz, and many others, are featured in a new book published by the Museum of New Mexico Press. Spoken Through Clay: Native Pottery of the Southwest showcases nearly three hundred pottery vessels from the acclaimed Eric S. Dobkin Collection, covering a wide range of mostly Pueblo artists from the Southwest.

“The physical scale of the vessels combined with the depth of the contemporary collection [is] breathtaking,” says author Charles S. King. The book is part of a “transitional process of looking to the clay, the vessel, and the potter’s voice and allowing the pieces to stand on the merit of their artistic integrity.”

The book includes portraits and voices of renowned potters speaking about their artistry and technique, families, culture, and traditions. Many of the artists are connected by Pueblos, generations, or family members. Dynamic color photography captures the depth and dimension of the pieces, while the artists provide an illuminating perspective through narrative captions. Artists, academics, collectors, family members, and gallerists add additional insight about the lives, historical context, and importance of these potters and their work.
