Concho, Rachel – Seedpot with Lizards
Rachel Concho (b. 1936) learned to make pottery from her mother, Santana Cerno. She is a sister of Joseph Cerno and mother-in-law of Carolyn Lewis-Concho. In 2000 she won Best in Show at Santa Fe Indian Market. Her pottery is coil built and painted with bee-weed (black) and clay slips. This seedpot has two lizards and insects on the top. On the bottom has a fine-line star pattern along with classic Acoma rain and lightning designs. There are accents of red clay slip. It is signed on the bottom in the clay and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
