Bob Lansing

Bob Lansing Pottery Photo.jpg

Native American Bob Lansing specializes in pottery which features detailed etchings of animals combined with Native American designs. His authentic Southwestern pieces are a unique blend of traditional and contemporary art, and embody the heart and soul of his Navaho heritage.  Bob begins by throwing the pieces by hand on the wheel.

He lets them dry slowly, trims and shapes the base and then paints the piece with the colors he desires using ceramic paint. Each layer of paint is permitted to dry before the next one is applied. When the pieces are painted, Bob begins the carving process, carving through the painted layers to the color he desires.

He uses specialized tools to create the intricate detail that is the signature of his work. The pottery is then kiln fired for six hours and permitted to gradually cool for 12 hours.

Bob then applies the final, very finely detailed “sgraffito,” or “incising” and other finishing touches to his work. The blending of geometric patterns, the use of feathers, and the portrayal of wildlife and birds are his hallmark.

 His hummingbird pottery is masterful!

Birds by Hummer

The Hummingbird is my muse and it seems destined to have captured my heart as my last name is Hummer!

I spend countless hours watching them, trying to capture moments with my camera that are not visible to the unaided eye. I find great joy in sharing the fascination and beauty of Humingbirds with others.

Charles Decker

Charles Decker is an award winning contemporary Native American Artist. Stop by his booth during the festival to watch as he creates Live Art while talking about the history and culture of the Sedona area! He and his ancestors (Dilzhe'e Apaches) have been occupying the Sedona areas for a long time. For Charles, the Hummingbird is a very iconic/spiritual being through his cultural religion, identity, day to day movements and creation story. Decker can't wait to share his thoughts, and learn from your connections!
