Lonewolf, Joseph – “Mimbres Bees” Seedpot (1984)
This seedpot by Joseph Lonewolf is from 1984 and it is highly polished and fired red. The seedpot is inspired by the Mimbres pottery designs. Here there are two different bees etched into the surface of the clay. As the seedpot is turned there is the yearly symbol for 1984 on the back. It is meant to represent a bright future. The seedpot also comes with the original card typed out by Joseph explaining the designs. It is signed on the bottom in the clay. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There is a companion piece with realistic bees (see last photo), also from 1984.
