Romero, Susan “Snowflake” – Two-Sided Seedpot with Skunks (1980s)
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 from the 1980s. The piece is one of her iconic shapes with two flat sides. There is a realistic skunk on one side. The opposite side has two Mimbres-inspired skunks, with one standing on the back of the other! The surrounding areas have cloud, star, and mountain designs. It is a clever and charming piece! 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.
