Namoki, Lawrence – “Fire God” Seedpot (1980s)
Lawrence Namoki has been known for a variety of styles in his pottery. This is one of his classic pieces from the 1980s. It is a seedpot with a carved Fire God Katsina as the design. The figure is carved into various levels of the clay and the background is also etched. The remainder is slipped with brown clay to look like wood. The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Lawrence Namoki”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
