Here is an awesome vintage Native American Jemez Pueblo Pottery Two Toned Wedding Vase. It measures 16 inches tall X 8 inches wide. It has a two toned design one side white and the other side red along with black geometrical patterns all around. The colors very much remind me of the old two toned Maricopa Pottery. She did a fantastic job designing this one because it is a true eye catcher, one of the nicest wedding vases I have seen. The vase is in excellent condition with no damage, no chips, no cracks and no repairs. Glaze is in excellent condition all the way around. It is signed by well known Jemez Artist "Maxine A Yepa" on the bottom also marked "Walatowa" (Jemez Pueblo). This is a perfect piece to be displayed in any collection. Please email any questions.
Maxine Yepa is a full blooded Native American Indian and a member of the Oak Clan. Maxine was born in 1970 and is half Jemez Pueblo and half Walatowa Indian. Maxine developed an interest in hand coiling pottery at the age of 15. Her grandmother, Anasita Chinana, taught her all the traditional fundamentals of working with clay art. She is the daughter of Christine Tosa, another well known Jemez potter.
Maxine specializes in handmade traditional and contemporary styled Jemez pottery. She gathers all of her natural raw materials from within the Jemez Pueblo. She hand cleans, mixes, hand coils, shapes, sands, paints, and fires her own pottery. On her contemporary styles she hand carves melon ribs or swirls on each piece to add some flare to her work. Finally, Maxine stone polishes her pottery. She has signed her pottery as Maxine Andrews, Jemez/Walatowa, but now she signs it as Maxine Yepa Walatowa/Jemez.
Maxine is related to the following artisans: Christine Tosa (mother), Jennifer Andrew (sister), Pauline Romero (aunt), and Donald Chinana (cousin).
