PINE RIDGE POTTERY
INCISED SGRAFFITO ASHTRAY
BY ELLA IRVING
In the remarkable, admirable and singular pottery history of Pine Ridge, here is another great piece, this time in the now coveted sgraffito technique with a Native, geometric design, for which Pine Ridge is now best known, having been the only ones to do this. Here, the motif, I believe, is thunderclouds and mountains.
The ashtray stands about 1.75" tall & is about 4.5" wide at its shoulders. It is hand-inscribed on the bottom with the pine trees & hills cypher, "Pine Ridge Sioux" and signed by Ella Irving.
There is no damage or repairs. There was some kiln over-firing in the final clear glaze, which you can see in the pictures, but due to the flash, this appearance is somewhat exaggerated. It's really not objectionable. Doubtful this was ever used as an ashtray. It's in great condition.
If you collect Dakota pottery and/or Pine Ridge, you know these aren't around by the thousands or even hundreds. South Dakota had but two real art potteries in its history, and the illustrious, determined, talented ladies at Pine Ridge made their distinctive mark in all of American art pottery. Gotta love it.
