Birdell Bourdon, Santa Clara-Tewa

Birdell Bourdon, “Vine Flower,” was born in 1957 at the Santa Clara-Tewa Pueblo. She was taught the family tradition of hand-coiling pottery using ancient, ancestral methods by her mother, the late Marie Sisneros. Birdell specializes in the hand-coiled Sanat Clara black polished pottery, using clay from the tribal pits within the Santa Clara Pueblo. She cleans, mixes, hand-coils, shapes and fires her pottery the traditional way, outdoors with saw dust, and signs her pottery: "Birdell, Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico".

Birdell is cited in the following publications:
- Working with Clay
- Collections of Southwest Pottery
- Pueblo Indian Pottery: 750 Artist Biographies.

Seed Pot - Originally seed pots were pottery vessels created to safely store seeds for the following growing season. They were unglazed inside so the seeds could breath. The hole on the top was made small to suit the size of the seeds such as beans and corn. The original pottery version might be 10 inches or more in diameter. Some contemporary artists, in a revival of tradition, are calling attention to the seed pot by making ornate sterling silver miniatures.

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThe Ocean Collection

An avid Native American jewelry and artifact collector lived by the ocean in southern California. When he passed away, he left the fruits of his passion to his son. After a few years, his son lovingly chose a few sentimental pieces to remind him of his dad and sent the rest to us to find new homes for his dad's treasures. You will find some of his items in the Vintage Shop and some that we couldn't verify are Native American made, in the Bargain Barn. Unique pieces wherever they landed.
