Antoinette Silas Hone created this beautiful pot that is hand coiled, hand painted and pit fired using wood and dung in the Hopi tradition. She is the sister of Loretta Silas and a daughter of Roberta Silas whose work we presented for years. Roberta was a uniquely creative spirit. Like her mother and sister, Antoinette gathers her own clay at First Mesa along with clays, minerals and vegetation that are used to create the beautiful designs that are the hallmark of the Silas family pottery. This pot has very good shape, color and execution plus a grand flair of inspiration in the design. There is a smallish smoke cloud on one side but this is not uncommon for a pot that is fired in the traditional way. Anyone can fire pottery in a kiln but it takes years of learning and practice to create pit fired pottery.
