Tafoya, Camilio – Large Seedpot with Rabbit Hunters (1973)
This large seedpot by Camilio Tafoya is from 1973. It is fully polished and like much of Camilio’s pottery, it tells a story. Here, the boy is hunting a rabbit on one side with a bow and arrow. He is shown on the other side returning to the village with the rabbit. Separating the two large medallions are plant designs. Camilio began creating sgraffito pottery with his daughter, Grace Medicine Flower in 1970-1 and quickly developed his own style of pottery. The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay. The seedpot is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
