Gray hand coiled micaceous clay - Circa 2007
Derived from the earth and transformed into spiritual discovery, 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. Petite, yet impactful. Vigil creates a gourd-inspired piece that becomes an exceptional exercise in shape and design. Accomplishing the clay base of the piece, he patiently coils his muse to render the desired form. Marvelously, the artist achieves sharp, defining edges while its height reflects smooth, distinguishing lines on both sides. Its opening is a dynamic portrayal of elegant distinction. Upon the light, the sleek surfaces of the micaceous clay shimmers in perfected poise. Endowed with striking sophistication, this work of Vigil remains an impressive expression to endlessly captivate the soul.
