Pottery Artist: Leo Blackhorse

LEO BLACKHORSE specializes in ultra fine etching and 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.  Each piece comes with an artist biography card for your display.  Leo was born for the Hashk'aahadzohi' or Yucca Fruit Strung Out On A Line clan and born to the Todachinii or Bitter Water clan.

NOTE - The camera has made the colors on this piece more shiny and brighter than they really are.  The actual piece is warmer and more subtle in color.
