3.25"w x 1.25"h

$ 550.00

This is a classic seedpot by Dorothy Torivio.  She was among the first to utilize and then refine the “op-art” style in her Acoma pottery. She took classic Acoma patterns and then repeated them on a vessel, ranging the size from small to large and then small again, in accordance with the shape of the vessel.  The sharp shoulder shape of the seedpot helped to emphasize the shape of her painted designs.  The piece has a butterfly pattern which is repeated in smaller and then larger sizes.  The precision and tight painting near the opening is exceptional.   The seedpot is signed on the bottom, “Dorothy Torivio” and it is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
