Gaylon Westika is the son of noted potters Anderson and Avelia Peynetsa.  Each piece is coil built and painted with classic Zuni imagery.  This is a smaller duck figure.  The duck has two feathers on the head and rainbirds painted on the body.  At the back of the duck is a dragonfly.  Dragonflies are significant as prayer messengers. The body of the piece is a darker red and the eyes are the more orange-red clay.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay.  Gaylon says of his art:

“I work hard to develop pottery that speaks both to me and others about the beauty that exists here in Zuni. With the completion of each piece, I believe the breath of my ancestors live on, reminding us of the Zuni culture, traditional design and lifestyle we strive to preserve.” Gaylon Westika
