$ 400.00

Susan “Snowflake” Romero’s pottery is highly polished and intricately etched with detailed imagery.  Many of her skills are ones that she learned from her father, Joseph Lonewolf. This seedpot is fully polished.  It is an early piece of her pottery from the 1970s. The seedpot is oval in shape. There is a Mimbres-style quail, turkey, and three other birds. Two of the birds are flying by a tree.  It is a simple design, but all the elements of her later, more complicated designs, are present.  It was traditionally fired and has a highly polished surface.  The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay with her Tewa name, “Pho-sa-We”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
