EssayRossi’s inspiration for this artwork was a visit to the Heard Museum of Native Cultures and Art in Phoenix, Arizona. Native American pottery is an art and a cultural treasure. Depicted are the famous Pueblo pottery from the Hopi culture with their similarities, contrast and interplay of design. Hopi pottery was created only for the potter’s family, relatives and friends for whom the women traded with. She wanted to represent the beautiful geometric patterns and colors of the Anasazi period. She used Dick Blick Premier Cotton Canvas and Winsor/Newton, Utretch and Senelier handmade oil colors. She only ships artwork stretched and delivery includes packaging materials and a Masonite-like board to protect the work.
