Namoki, Lawrence – “Guess Who” Seedpot (1988)
Lawrence Namoki has been known for a variety of styles in his pottery. This is a charming piece from 1988. It is a seedpot with a carved Koshari clown looking through the beard of a Longhair Katsina! The two figures are carved in relief. The background area is also incised. The surrounded area is slipped with brown clay to look like wood. There are incised petroglyph designs and figures. The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Lawrence Namoki”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
