Small Carved Black Bowl
A noted Santa Clara potter, famous for the deep carving and fine polish of her black ware pieces. Both are evident in this lovely little bowl.
There is a precisely painted matte black outline around each rain feather motif, which emphasizes the deeply carved shapes.
This modern-looking bowl is completely traditional, from hand gathered clay through hand coiling and smoothing, carving , stone polishing, painting, and pit- firing.
Sleek and elegant, with a presence larger than its size.
