Gray hand coiled micaceous clay - Circa 2005
Derived from the earth and transformed into spiritual inspiration, its artist creates a stunning work to behold. Renowned Native artist, Lonnie Vigil molds clay found from the Nambé Oweenge Pueblo in New Mexico to create contemporary works of compelling vision. Here, gun metal gray micaceous clay is gently molded to compose a piece of elegant, subtle design. Once the base is complete, the artist patiently coils length to contribute a robust, shapen design ready to rapture the hearts of all who gaze upon its exceptional beauty. Softened form meets dynamic, contemporary ingenuity: The openings of Vigil's pieces often adorn undulating character and sensuous vitality. Carefully achieved with the utmost diligence, the artist ultimately creates an expression to engage one's most soul-stirring occasion.
