$490.0

Item Description: This large effigy pot was made by well known Maricopa potter Mabel Sunn (1898-1980). Mabel is recognized as one of the most important Maricopa potters of the 20th century. This is one of her rare effigy pots. Two large lizards are on opposite sides. The pot is 7 1\4" tall and measures 7 5\8" across. It is signed by M C Sunn on the bottom. Mabel was a traditional potter, hand building her pots with native clay and stone burnishing with red iron oxide slip then decorating with mesquite sap paint and pit firing. This rare effigy pot by noted potter Mabel Sunn is in excellent condition. Mable Sunn was part of the revival influence on Maricopa pottery in the early 20th century and was certainly recognized as one of the most important Maricopa potters of the 20th century. There were two pottery revival periods for the Maricopa-one occurred around 1940 and the second around 1970. Mable was instrumental in both. She achieved fame for her pottery and lived her life on the reservation in a simple manner, without even air conditioning in the stifling heat of the Arizona summers. Her daughter, Barbara Johnson and Barbara's daughter, Vicki Howard, are continuing the tradition today. Please click here to check out our store.
