Santa Clara Exquisite Large Lidded Box with Koi by Chris Youngblood
Chris is making fewer pots, with each of increasing, size, complexity and beauty. This gorgeous large box is a perfect example. Beautifully formed and polished with additional matte and micaceous areas. The koi are elegantly carved and the lid is a work of art all its own, with a subtle asymmetry in the lid's 2 surfaces. Chris is the son of acclaimed potter Nancy Youngblood and great grandson of legendary potter Margaret Tafoya. This is one of 2 great pieces Chris made for the Black Pottery Then and Now show.
