Lowden, Anita – Seedpot with Ants (1960s)
Anita Lowden was a daughter of Jesse Garcia and sister of Stella Shutiva. She was one of the earlier Acoma Pueblo potters to use Mimbres designs. This seedpot has two ants as the design on the top of the piece. It is fully polished and then painted and traditionally fired. The design of the ants is inspired by the Mimbres pottery designs of the 1100’s. The piece is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Anita Lowden”.
