2006-05 Tiny Redware Bowl

Object ID:
2006-05

Artist:
Delmar Polacca

Culture:
Tewa-Hopi

Dimensions:
1.0"h X 1.56"w

This tiny pot is untraditional in almost every respect. Like other Delmar pots, it is probably kiln-fired. It may have been formed by some method other than coiling and it was not stone-polished, as would be typical of a Tewa-Hopi pot. The finish is particular and the lightly drawn design may have just been drawn on the pot after firing. It is hard to tell. The corn design is the only traditional aspect of the pot. Like his father, Delmar produces both painted and deeply carved pots.
