VINTAGE KANYENGEH/MOHAWK POTTERY CUP - DEE MARTIN

Usually clay sculptors depict human figures representing artistic visions of Haudenosaunee concerns today such as pollution of the environment or even the society. The Haudenosaunee artist is sophisticated and sensitive; cognizant of the wrongs his people have suffered, and subtly critical of his people’s response to outside intrusions. The first concerted effort came from a few dedicated women and men at the Six Nations Reserve in Canada in the late 1960s. The late Elda and Oliver Smith along with Sylvia Smith, Dee Martin, and Karen Williams began to create a form of pottery which became known as Mohawk Pottery. While using an electric wheel and kiln, they produced pots which were Haudenosaunee in design yet modern in function. These artisans developed a brown wash which resembled the colors of the ancient pots and studied the geometric design elements to decorate their pots. In time they also began to use the clay as a canvas, incising into the clay, designs which symbolically represented events in their history or meaningful values such as a tree of peace or clan animal. Others such as Darlene Smith, have now joined this original studio known as Kanyengeh Pottery and a few potters have developed their own style of creating in clay. Kanyengeh Pottery has now closed, but a few potters continue on their own.
