This unique and whimsical seedpot was handcrafted by Jemez Pueblo potter Carol Lucero Gachupin and features the butterfly a representation of beauty, transformation and rebirth. With a removable lid, this piece can hide and protect small treasures.
Taught by her mother, Margaret Lucero, Carol grew up around clay and learned from her mother when and how to work with the clay and how to make natural pigments from elements of the Earth. Later, she was exposed to the work of Marie Romero's bowls and wedding vases and was inspired to create her own style of storytellers and wedding vases. A unique and highly detailed work from a talented potter, this statement piece adds instant merit to any art collection.
Bowl measures 5" long and 5"wide and stands 6-1/4" tall. Comes with certificate of authencity.
