Award winning artist Red Starr “Elk” is a full blooded Native American Indian born into the Sioux Nation in 1937. He was inspired to hand coil and craft pottery by Charles Blunt Horn (uncle), Norman Red Star (nephew), and Swift Bird (cousin).
Red Starr specializes in hand etching on the traditional black on black, Santa Clara pottery. He will etch animals, feathers, bear paws, and many other different designs. He accents his pottery with turquoise stones. He also hand carves sculptures on wood or stone, crafts belt buckles from bead work and he enjoys oil painting the most because he says: “I can get more creative and distinctive in my designs.” This piece is signed by the artist.
