Scraffito Buffalo Seed Pot by Dean Haungooah (#16)

2 1/2"


In outstanding detail, Kiowa/Santa Clara artist Dean Haungooah has etched a stylized Buffalo, and much more, into his small seed bowl. Dean begins the process of creating his pottery by digging clay from his family pit, then undertaking the incredibly time-consuming actions it takes to make such a piece as this. Dean hand forms, burnishes, and fires his pottery, then takes up a steel scribe to do the etching work. Dean's steady hand, sharp eye, and a great deal of artistic talent allows him to create objects of such singular beauty.
