Elizabeth Manygoats (Navajo/Diné, b. 1973) here presents a hand-fashioned pottery bowl depicting scenes from Navajo life, including a woman dressed in traditional Navajo clothing--a velvet blouse and full skirt--riding a horse, chased by a dog and a cow. Elizabeth refers to such work as "lifestyle pots." Though she paints her figures on her pots in bright colors, she uses traditional Navajo pottery methods: clay formed by hand and pitch pine to seal her pots. Signed on the bottom: Elizabeth M '08." Size: 6" W x 4" H.

CONDITION: Excellent. The whitened places on the pot are a result of the techniques used in making the pot, including hand-coiled clay and glazing with pitch pine, and are not flaws.

Artist Bio: Elizabeth Manygoats (Navajo, b. 1973) considers her work to fall into the Navajo folk art category. She says she is self-taught, and she is the daughter of the renowned potter Betty Manygoats and is married to the Navajo potter Johnathan Chee. Many of her works portray everyday life on the Navajo reservation and such scenes include the livestock, native animals, hogans, and people living in harmony.


Lovely small pot by a renowned potter. Excellent condition and value.
