Charming Six Nations Pottery teepee that was probably created as an ashtray or incense burner. Smoke would rise from the smoke hole at the top when something was burning inside. Six Nations pottery is known for delicate carvings and incising of images of nature and symbols from the group’s history. The brown matte exterior is decorated with two distinctive geometric bands, and features a finely incised antelope on the back. The front shows stitching marks, also incised. The teepee is signed “DMS” on the bottom with the traditional flint & feather mark of the Kanyengeh Six Nations Pottery. The initials DMS could stand for Darlene Smith (d. 2001), a well respected artist at the pottery. The Kanyengeh Six Nations Pottery was located on the Six Nations Reserve near the Brantford area of Southern Ontario and their work is quite distinctive and sought after (the pottery is now closed). The teepee measures 6.5 inches high and the bottom is 3.5 inches in diameter. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or losses, damage or repairs. Fabulous First Nations art for a cabin, cottage or rustic home.
