Pottery Artist: Chris Blackhorse

CHRIS BLACKHORSE specializes in ultra fine two-tone etching, where the artist etches through one layer of paint to reveal the next layer without going through it. Imagine the thickness of a layer of paint and you begin to see how difficult and time consuming this work is.  The contemporary geometric patterns draw on several traditional designs including feather, steps, rain and a variety of spiral shapes.  Chris normally works his feather and signature trademark into the design panels.  He was born for the Hashk'aahadzohi' or Yucca Fruit Strung Out On A Line clan and born to the Todachinii or Bitter Water clan.
