Maker of jewelry – and killer oven bread – this gifted lady is also a fine potter, as seen in this charming effigy bowl. Completely traditional – even the form is ancient – the black outlines, and mustard-y cream of the clay slip, are typical of Santo Domingo Pueblo (now KeWa) pottery.There is a simplified, almost folk-art feel to this piece, that accentuates its appeal. Gracefully formed, the sweet expression and pretty design of flowers are most attractive. This little bird will fly away at its equally attractive price, but bring it home and it will be yours forever, modestly accepting all admiring comments.
