Lonewolf, Joseph – “Anasazi Potter & Butterflies” Seedpot (1994)
This seedpot by Joseph Lonewolf is from 1994. The piece is one of his few black-fired pieces. It is fully etched with a potter working on painting a piece of pottery. They are surrounded by several other pieces of finished pottery. Above the figure are butterflies. Each butterfly is detailed and has various clay-colored slips. There is a small butterfly etched into the black along with the yearly symbol. It is a more complex design, both in the figure and as well as the colors. It is signed on the bottom, “Joseph Lonewolf” and has the yearly symbol for 1994. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
