Preston hand coiled this beautiful seed pot, adding the shifting sands pattern. It is made from white Hopi clay found on Third Mesa at Hopi. Preston gave me this informative explanation of this design. “My name is Preston Duwyenie, and I come from the Hopi village of Hotevilla, Arizona. The village I was born into is inundated in and around sand, and the land serves as a means of expression. The textural quality of the land is represented by the rippling lines on the surfaces of the clay vessels. And both the land and the water develop the same texture when the breath of God blows across them” Hopi people believe all waters emanate from Heaven.”
The flowing curved lines on the bowl blend in beautifully with the similar flowing impressions on the silver ingot. The bowl is rounded on the bottom and fits well on the included Lucite stand.
