Lonewolf, Joseph – Mimbres Rabbit Seedpot (1976)
Beginning in the early 1970’s, Joseph Lonewolf revolutionized the world of Santa Clara pottery by incorporating his sgraffito (lightly etching the surface of the clay) and incised (more deeply cut into the clay) designs. This seedpot is from 1976 and it is fully designed. On the top is a Mimbres inspired rabbit. The surrounding designs are water, grass and plant imagery. The piece is highly polished and fired red. It is signed on the bottom in the clay with the date. It is in condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
