End Date: 9/20/2013End Time: 3:00 PM
Event Description
Ancient Southwest Pottery Lecture with Award-Winning Laguna Pueblo Potter- Michael Kanteena.
Kanteena specializes in recreations of historic and pre-historic styles, such as those found in the ruins of Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde. At this lecture he will share why he uses ancient designs in his work and will talk about clays, techniques and traditions.
His studies of ancient pottery have led him to explore the design motifs of the Mimbres and ancient Mexican peoples, which have also found their way into his contemporary styles. Due to the merging of cultures, old and new, Kanteena's animals, pots and kachinas are distinctive from other pueblo potters.
Kanteena received the Wingspread Collector's Guide Award of Excellence and Judge's Choice at the prestigious Heard Museum Indian Artists' Show in Phoenix. His work can be found at the Wheelwright Museum of Santa Fe, as well as numerous galleries. He received a BA in Fine Arts from Eastern New Mexico University in 1981.
