A highly respected Laguna Pueblo potter who is known for her traditional designs, as well as traditional technique. This parrot design is a Pueblo icon, but Gladys has interpreted it in a fresh, feminine and flowing style.The design is crisply painted and beautifully conceived to emphasize and harmonize with the classic form of the pot. Instead of a parrot surrounded by a rainbow, the artist has chosen to surround the motif with plants and flowers, leaving plenty of white space so the design elements each stand out. Serene, but full of graceful movement, and entirely hand made, of course, from clay to natural pigments. A perfectly formed, perfectly painted and designed, beautiful example of timeless pottery making.The award-winning potter has reduced her output in recent years, but the quality and artistry are as evident as always.
