Description

Startled fawn effigy, teapot shape. Red on cream slip. Negative "spots" on fawn. Made by Anna Mitchell (1926 – 2012).

Mitchell was a member of the Cherokee Nation. She was named a Cherokee National Living Treasure in the art of pottery in 1988, having almost single-handedly revived the hand-made tradition among the Oklahoma Cherokee.

Mitchell’s works incorporate southeastern ancestral pottery traditions of the Cherokee, Creek, Quapaw, Tunica, and Caddo peoples.
