Honoring a Life of Creativity and Artistic Talent
“It is always hard when we lose a member of our SAR family and on Saturday, September 26, 2020, after a prolonged illness, we lost 2019 Rollin and Mary Ella King artist fellow Tim Edaakie.
Tim was a member of the Zuni Tribal Community and a potter. His goal while at SAR was to research the Zuni collection at IARC and share his art and passion with his fellow Zuni potters.
Last winter, we had the opportunity to talk with Tim about his work as part of a series of interviews conducted for a planned podcast series. In the conversation with host Thomas Grant Richardson, Tim shared a little about his heritage and his work as a potter. We are honored to share the interview in tribute to this wonderful artist. We at SAR were so privileged to have been given a chance to get to know him during his lifetime.“
