Indian Art Market 2013: Pahponee, 2nd Place Winner

Pahponee is one of the top Native American potters and has been working with clay since the early 1980s.  She is a descendant of the Kickapoo and Potawatomi Nations, originally from the Great Lakes. Her Kickapoo name, "Pahponee," translates as “Snow Woman.” She is a self-taught clay artist who fuses the traditional pottery methods of her woodland culture with contemporary techniques. Pahponee spent years experimenting with hand-dug clay and commercial clay as well as primitive outdoor dung firing and contemporary kiln firing. Her experimentation and research resulted in technical excellence in clay properties, tools, hand building, and firing techniques.  
Pahponee’s style is elegant and graceful, and her one-of-a-kind pottery is inspired by her dreams and personal life experiences. She is recognized by her peers and has won dozens of awards from nationally juried shows across the U.S.A.  
The 2016 show is October 8 and 9 at the Natural History Museum of Utah.
