Lonnie Vigil is known for his creative use of micaceous clay and is one of a handful of potters from Nambe pueblo.  He has taken this style of pottery and transformed it from utilitarian into fine art.  This large open bowl is thin walled and beautifully fired. The shape is an open bowl with a slight rim.  The piece has been traditionally fired so that the exterior reveals the color of the micaceous clay while the interior has the smoke giving it a color variation from a metallic to deep black. The firecloud extend just around the edge of the lip.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.   It is this refinement of a traditional art form for which Lonnie won “Best of Show” at Santa Fe Indian Market in the 1998.
