Here's an opportunity that doesn't come along all that often — purchase a vase made by famous Hopi potter Tom Polacca (1935-2003). Tom's work today is typically found only in museums and private collections. In fact, in a recent trip across the entire state of New Mexico, we found only two pieces of Tom's work available, both smaller (9-10inches tall), both with less detail (2 dancers instead of 3), and ironically both priced at $2,400.
Tom Polacca, son of Fannie Nampeyo and grandson of Nampeyo, started off following the traditions made famous by his mother and grandmother. However, being the adventurous person that he was, Tom broke from tradition introducing a new style of incised pottery that, as history has shown, elevated Tom Polacca's stature as one of the great Hopi potters.
As stated earlier, here is your chance to own a rarely available 12 inch vase hand-coiled, painted and incised by the innovator himself — Tom Polacca.
Vase stands 12 inches tall and is 8.5 inches wide at the widest point
