2004-05 Casually Painted Folk Pot with Hooks and Geometric Designs

This is a well formed, casually painted pot has a black rim and three roughly similar designs repeated on it. The designs incorporate a downward hook or horn; two of the three designs incorporate smaller black triangles and larger red triangles. The third horn has a solid red triangle. Step cloud images and two panels incorporate a cross stick pattern. These two panels also have a three-feather design that frames the break line. Although the painting is casual, it has a fine folk-art spirit that gives the pot unusual vitality and presence.
