Lilly Salvador is known for her thin-walled pottery and use of native materials to paint her designs. This seedpot is painted with bee-weed and clay slips. There is her signature gray color of clay, along with red. There are a variety of Mimbres insects across the surface of the piece. Each is different and they are all highly detailed in design. All the various colors are from natural clay slips. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Lilly”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
