Lonnie Vigil (1949 -) signature.RIBBON - .  The jar was awarded an Honorable Mention at the Santa Fe Indian Market in 1991.There is very little that is more beautiful than golden clay with micaceous flakes shimmering against the light, especially when it is in a piece of pueblo pottery that has dark black fire clouds scattered about. If the piece of pottery was made by master potter Lonnie Vigil, then you know you have acquired the best there is.

This large jar was made about 25 years ago by Lonnie Vigil and it is in excellent original condition. It displays a beautiful array of fire clouds. It is signed on the bottom with the artist’s name and pueblo.  The jar was awarded an Honorable Mention at the Santa Fe Indian Market in 1991.

The lower 1/3rd of the jar is ribbed because of the jar having been started in a basket, the old-fashioned way of a hundred years ago.  Lonnie not only has revived micaceous pottery at Nambe Pueblo, but has revived the ancient way in which it was formed.  His masterful firing technique produced beautiful fire clouds on the shoulder of the jar.
