Chavarria, Harvey & Debra Trujillo – Flat Seedpot with Turtle and Sunface (1980’s)
This is an intricate seedpot by Debra Trujillo (Duwyenie) and Harvey Chavarria. The seedpot is fully polished and etched with a turtle in the center. The back of the turtle is a Sun Face. Surrounding the turtle are feathers and a mountain design. Debra would etch the designs into the clay before they were fired. The lighter red areas are where the polished surface has been etched away but not as deep as the tan areas. This flat, round shape of seepot is one that was stylized by Debra & Harvey for their work. The piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Debra + Harvey”.
