This small bowl by Art Cody Haungooah is from 1974.  The bowl is fully polished and there is a section with the etched design.  Here is a lizard which is inspired by the Mimbres pottery.  The lizard has shell insets for its eyes as well as 6 in the body.  Art used the shell insets as a reflection of new trends in Pueblo pottery at the time, but also as these are little beads, they recall the Kiowa influence of beaded objects.  The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Haungooah”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.

Haungooah, Art Cody (1943-1985)

Art Cody Haungooah (1943 - 1985) Art began making pottery at Santa Clara Pueblo in the early 1970's.  Married to Martha Suazo, he developed his unique style of incised imagery using Santa Clara coiling and polishing techniques. Until he passed away in the early 1980's, he was considered very creative for his very distinctive imagery.  In 1976 he wrote of his work that , "I'm experiencing with the pot, in a manner similar to a painter, the subject matter, at a given moment is captured and the impressions and thoughts.  They become living symbols and a living composition is created and recorded". Art said of his work, "Pottery is becoming a format for releasing designs and ideas - just like on canvas". Art said, "In the future I will surpass my present work and create artistic works of greater quality".  It makes one wonder if he had worked longer than the short ten year span of his career what other innovative and original works he would have created!  Throughout his short career he won numerous awards at The Heard Museum, Santa Fe Indian Market, Gallup Ceremonials and other events.
