Description
Rick Dillingham was an influential ceramic artist and important scholar of Native American ceramics. While an undergraduate at UNM during the early 1970s, he broke out of the popular craft tradition and began appropriating visual aspects of prehistoric Ancestral Pueblo pottery and Native artists. Dillingham created this work in a Native American ethnography class that Linda Cordell was teaching during her first year at UNM. The work was created and fired as part of the class in Cordell’s backyard.
