A beautiful hand-coiled and pit-fired pot by Cree artist Glen Nipshank. Perfect as a standalone piece or part of a growing collection.
Born in northern Alberta, Canada, Glen Nipshank is a Bigstone Cree. He spent the first 12 years of his life growing up in isolated communities along one of the largest lakes in Alberta. Traditional Cree stories, as well as the water, woods and animals of Alberta, still inspire him. By the time Glen was a teenager, his family had moved to Vancouver, British Columbia. Glen studied art in Minnesota and Vancouver before he came to New Mexico. He moved to Santa Fe about 1990 and graduated from the Institute of American Indian Arts in 1994. “I am a painter by trade,” he has said, but he has worked in clay for over a decade.
