Trancosa, Kevin – Seedpot with Swirling Triangular Geometric (1997)
Kevin Trancosa was one of the few potters working at San Felipe Pueblo. I was lucky to work with him from 1996-8 in Scottsdale. Each piece was coil built and made from San Felipe clay. This seedpot has a flat top and sharp edge. The piece is painted with a spiraling design that extends from the opening to the base. The design accentuates the form. The piece is from 1997 and it is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Kevin Trancosa”. 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.
