Patricio, Robert – Small Seedpot with Sun Designs
Robert Patricio is known for his classic forms and use of both traditional and pre-historic imagery. This seedpot is coil-built and thin-walled. It has a star pattern on top and clouds on the side. The thin lines are a hallmark of Robert’s precision painting. Robert is certainly one of the leading traditional Acoma potters working today which is evidenced by his stunning forms and complementary designs. The jar is signed on the bottom, “R. M. Patricio”.
Robert said recently of his pottery:
““The pottery inspires me to keep going. Keeping the tradition alive in making pottery, that’s how we were brought up. Our ancestors started making pottery. It’s amazing what comes of a piece of clay. When you come to Acoma it’s peacuful and quite. When you look a piece of pottery, you see the same peacefulness.” Robert Patricio, 2020
