$ 250.00

This seedpot by Ray Tafoya is from 1981. It is an earlier piece of his pottery. The piece is fully polished and etched with an iconic Mimbres bird with the fish seen in its neck.  The light red areas are where the polished surface was etched away, but not deep enough to get to the tan area.  The hole is on the bottom of the seedpot.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “R. Tafoya’, and with his hallmark which is a White Mountain, which is his name in Tewa,
