Chino, Grace – Seedpot with Fine Line Star Pattern (1970’s)
Grace Chino was a daughter of noted potter Marie Z. Chino and a sister of noted potters Carrie Chino Charlie and Rose Chino. Over the years she won numerous awards for her pottery at Santa Fe Indian Market and her work was featured in the “7 Families in Pueblo Pottery” and in museums around the country. This seedpot reveals her very delicately painted fine-line designs. Here the lines create a series of interlocking stars which spread across the surface of the piece. The seedpot is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Grace Chino”.
