$ 2,200.00

Kevin Trancosa was one of the few potters working at San Felipe Pueblo.  I was lucky to work with him from 1996-7 in Scottsdale.  Each piece was coil built and made from San Felipe clay.  In 1997 he began working with white micaceous clay.  The result was a striking appearance with black painted designs and a micaceous surface.  This jar is painted with a mountain design which extends from the base to the neck.  Note how small the design is when it reaches the neck!  The lid is also mica slipped and has a face and tablita.  Kevin only made a few of these that I remember.  This particular piece was purchased from the gallery.   The piece is from 1997 and it is signed on the bottom in the clay.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  While he had a brief career, his work remains important among San Felipe potters.ote how small the design is when it reaches the neck!  The lid is also mica slipped and has a face and tablita.  Kevin only made a few of these that I remember, and typically they were for one of the art shows in which exhibited.  The piece is from 1997 and it is signed on the bottom in the clay.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  While he had a brief career, his work remains important among San Felipe potters.
