Haungooah, Art Cody – Seedpot with 16 Blue Feathers (1978)
This seedpot by Art Cody Haungooah is from 1978. It is polished red on the bottom and polished on the top with a bluish-gray clay. The top is etched with 16 feathers as the design. The clay coloration is unusual and one of the signatures of Art’s pottery style. He worked to create a deviation from the traditional colors and designs of Santa Clara pottery. In doing so, he was one of the first (along with Joseph Lonewolf) to find clay colors that were green or blue, instead of just reds! It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Art Haungooah”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
