Preston Duwyenie (Lomaiquilvaa [Carried In Beauty]) is a Hopi artist who has received many awards in major Indian Market competitions, including the Colorado Indian Market in Denver and The Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market in Phoenix. Beginning in the 1980s, Preston began using micaceous clays and sometimes sterling silver in his pots.

In this miniature pot, Preston has created a very organic and compelling seed jar that is part of the Shifting Sands Series of pottery that he has developed. The inset image reflects sand that has been transformed by wind or water into concentric ripples. The design around the sand refers to clouds and the water that clouds often hold.
