American Vintage Folk Art

We got several pieces of original American vintage folk art.


This unique and peaceful pottery was made by Stella Shutiva from Acoma Pueblo New Mexico. The corrugated body with humorous design is Stella's unique style which came from a traditional technique. Stella demonstrated her techniques at the Smithsonian Institute in 1973.


This happy face hillbilly was carved by a legendary caricature wood carver, Harold L. Enlow who was a founding member of Caricature Carvers of America.


This wooden folk art was made by a prisoner confined to a prison at Oklahoma. It has a very dark aura.
