Haungooah, Art Cody- Black and Sienna Seedpot with Birds (1984)
This seedpot by Art Cody Haungooah is from 1984. It is fully polished and has etched designs. There is a quail on the top with a butterfly. An intricately etched feather pattern circles down from the top to the base. Near the base, there is a stylized cloud and bird along with a peacock. Note that the hole for the seedpot is the eye of the stylized bird! The entire piece was fired black and then Art used a torch to re-heat the base making it sienna. It is signed with two fish (typical for 1984) and “Hanungooah”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
