Navajo potter Westly Begaye created this gorgeous piece he calls “kiva pottery” in the traditional method, hand coiling the piece and painting it by hand as well. The piece showcases kiva steps cut out along the opening, which is painted black, while the remainder of the pot is painted with various designs, including a Pueblo house, a kokopelli (flute player), and several geometric designs that represent weather, crops, and water. The bottom half of the piece showcases reoccurring traingles and fine lines in black and red, which stand out beautifully against the buff backdrop, and the piece is finished with a delicate wooden ladder protruding upward out of the opening. Ladder is removable. 11 1/2″ tall with ladder x 7″ wide. 8 1/2″ tall without ladder.
