Edaakie, Tim – “Mimbres” Open Bowl (2018)

7"w x 3"h

$ 400.00

Tim Edaakie was a grandson of jewelers Dennis and Nancy Edaakie.  In 2019 he was awarded the prestigious “Native Artist Fellow” at the School of Advanced Research in Santa Fe, NM.  Unfortunately, he passed away in 2020.  He was working to revive traditional Zuni pottery methods, forms, and designs with a focus on the transition from Matsaki to A:shiwi styles.  This bowl is inspired by Mimbres pottery as it is an open bowl and fully painted on the inside.  The exterior is red while the interior is slipped white and painted black.  There is a single figure that encompasses the entire space. It is signed on the back, “Edaakie  2018”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  There are a few small areas of spalling.
