Gray hand coiled micaceous clay - Circa 2004
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. A mesmerizing work of shape and form. This esteemed piece once belonged the parents of our own Allison Barnett. With tender recollection, we now marvel at its elegant, organic device, imaged by its masterful maker. With a strong base, Vigil shapes the clay to a complex and shapely design. Its opening becomes a grand display of significant distinction. Square volume is an astounding expression that continues to draw the gaze in awe. Astute discernment unites with meaningful conception as Vigil channels the artistic spirit of his ancestors. With sheer tenacity, he composes a work to be cherished for days to come.
