Maho, Garrett – Gourd Bowl with Dragonflies
Garrett Maho is known for his traditional and innovative Hopi-Tewa pottery. This bowl has an undulating “gourd” shape. On the indentions of the bowl it is painted with a series of eight dragonflies. They alternate between red clay and mauve clay for their bodies. The remainder is painted with bee-weed (black). The bowl was traditionally fired and there and there are blushes on the surface. The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Garrett Maho”. Garrett has won numerous awards including the “Helen Naha” Award at Santa Fe Indian Market.
