Nancy Youngblood Lugo

(American, 1955-)

Description

The museum commissioned this vessel from Nancy Youngblood, who descends from generations of female potters of the Santa Clara Pueblo. She aims to perpetuate the traditional ceramic forms and methods of her forebearers. Thus, the vessel's shape echoes the pueblo's typical gourd-shaped ceramics, but its 32 hand-carved ribs are Youngblood's distinctive artistic signature.
