Trancosa, Kevin – Seedpot with 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 is a very round shape. It is painted with a triangular geometric design which has an op-art style. The design accentuates the form. The piece is from 1997 and it is signed on the bottom, ‘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.
