Michael Kanteena began to develop this style of work several years ago. Wishing to learn about his ancient roots, which he knew went back to New Mexico’s Chaco Canyon (the Anasazi culture), he began collecting archeological catalogues of pottery forms. Through extensive study, trial and error, and even consultation with archaeologists, he developed a pottery that is remarkably close recreations of the Chacoan and Mesa Verde potteries. He refers to his work as “Contemporary and Pre-Columbian Recreations in Clay”. Scratches, dings, dents, chips – just like the real antiquities.
Recently his studies have expanded to the Mimbres and ancient Mexican Indian forms where human and animal effigies are common. Most recently he has worked with some ancient Hopi designs. Michael has received several awards of recognition for his work including First Place at the Gallup Inter-tribal Ceremonials for the last three years. He has also received recognition in Southwest Art Magazine and his work appears in several galleries throughout the Southwest and at the Wheelwright Museum of Santa Fe.
