Of the Moment

We are pleased to offer an exquisite collection of seed pots by Navajo silversmith Norbert Peshalakai. The pots in this collection date from the 1980's and 1990’s, and were exhibited together at the Erie Art Museum as part of the Kappmeyer collection of Native American art in 1997, and published in the exhibition catalogue “In the Spirit of the Ancestors.”

Norbert Peshlakai comes from a long line of Navajo silversmiths, and is known for his entirely unique stamps and for innovating the silver seed pot form. His work is in numerous permanent collections, and is currently the subject of a one-man retrospective, curated by Ken Williams Jr., at the Wheelwright Museum of the Native American in Santa Fe, NM
