An accomplished potter, one of the famous Naranjo family, she is known for finely formed, intricately incised work.
This little seed pot is covered with a variety of textures, both etched and painted. Caroline loves all creatures great and small, and here has created a tapestry of creeping, crawling, and flying insects.
The design is dense, with areas of satiny black polish and stippled grey background. Faint brown lines and areas add a subtle warmth.
Bugs are important to the balance of nature. Here, they are all decorative and march around the pot, with the solid, stone-polished black area at the bottom.
A circle of wavy organic shapes dances around the shoulder, ending up in a matte black neck and wavy rim.
Fine artistry, flawless workmanship, and a delightful, plump shape, make this an appealing example of this noted artist’s work. And the price is appealing, too!
