San Ildefonso Miniature Plate with Copper and Heishe Bands by Russell Sanchez
When Russell says “I have a little plate for you,” I know a surprise is coming. This piece has all the features of Russel's larger pieces: great form (especially for a miniature), superb polish and deep color, dots (for rain), fine Calabaza heishe band, and a 2nd turquoise band, beautiful Kingman turquoise at the heart of the incized elk and a surprising 3rd band of copper. Innovative yet traditional while experimental; pure Russell!
