Charmae Natseway is known for her exceptionally painted pottery and use of distinctive forms. This piece is from 1980 and it is one of her very classic style seedpots. The piece is painted with three Mimbres animals. The Mimbres people lived in the Southwest and made pottery around 1100.  On this seedpot there is a bird (eating fish), a mountain lion and an antelope.  The top of the seedpot has a fineline design and plants.  Charmae is both an exceptional potter and also among the best Acoma painters.  The fine lines and precision of her imagery is always a perfect match of form and design.  The piece is signed on the bottom.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.

Group of uniquely shaped vessels by Charmae Natseway.

Charmae Natseway learned to make pottery from her mother, Ethel Shields. While she began making more traditional vessels, her work has evolved over the past decade to more non-conventional shapes for her "seedpots". She is one of the few potters who can create such unique forms and such flat surfaces. Charmae has won numerous awards for her pottery at Santa Fe Indian Market and other events. Her work is a striking blend of the contemporary with traditional designs.
