An artists in many mediums, Tony created this piece using commercial clay and creating a grid of beautifully hand-carved geometric patterns wrapping one side of the vase. Tony's designs are inspired by traditional Pueblo embroidery. He reflects that as a child some of his fondest memories are watching his mother create intricate embroidery patterns which now can be seen within his own work.
