This charming Frog Pot by Damacia Cordero (1905 - 1989) of Cochiti Pueblo was kindly donated to The Keshi Foundation by a generous collector. Damacia was a contemporary of Helen Cordero (1915 - 1994) and a family member. This pot celebrates the Heralds of Rain; the symbols include 3 frogs in relief and rainclouds around the outside of the pot, with small ones just inside the rim. The spirit openings of the pot appear both outside and inside the rims of the pot. The coiled pot is colored on the inside with red pigment made from Cochiti dirt, as is the very bottom, outside of the pot. There you will see a red sun with black rays, including another spirit opening. The signature, in pencil is located there. The black pigment on the pot is made from wild spinach. One can feel the loving care that went into this piece. The joyful frogs and the many delightful details inform one of the beautiful spirit of this special potter, Damacia Cordero. 5 inches tall x approx. 6 inches wide. $1250. No Tax. Shipping charges will be added, if necessary.
