Brown hand coiled micaceous clay - Circa 2008
A stunning work to behold, derived from the earth and transformed into spiritual inspiration. Renowned Native artist, Lonnie Vigil molds clay found from the Nambé Oweenge Pueblo in New Mexico to create contemporary works of compelling vision. An attractive expression of golden tones and effervescent notes in clay. Vigil creates a dazzling display of contemporary ingenuity. Forming a well rounded base, he patiently coils layer by layer of the micaceous clay to realize his desired design. Sleek, defined lines and shape are a marvel to observe in this piece. The artist completes the expression with a perfectly edged opening, contributing to this exceptional work of art. Amazingly, Vigil is a self-taught artist who follows the spirit of his ancestors to guide him on his own journey of artistic discovery. Today, he magnificently conceptualizes preserved Native technique to contrive contemporary works to fill the soul.
