A beautiful San Ildefonso Pueblo pot by Russell Sanchez (1963-). This pot dates to 1993. Russell Sanchez is considered one of the finest Pueblo potters alive today. Russell Sanchez has a many-decade history of winning awards which include the New Mexico Governor's Award for Excellence in Art 2017 and Best of Pottery at the Santa Fe Indian Market in 2019.
The pot is in excellent shape including all the tiny inlaid shells. There is one small flake below the shoulder, near the bottom of the pot, and some tiny glue spots around the shells. Please see the photos. This pot is signed on the bottom by Russell Sanchez and measures 2 ½” tall by 2 ¾” in diameter.
