Coriz, Arthur & Hilda  – Large Bowl with Plant Designs (1980’s)

This is very large bowl by Arthur and Hilda Coriz.  Hilda would coil build each piece and then they would be painted by Arthur. The painting was done with natural clay slips (white and red) and then wild spinach (black).  This striking large jar is painted with a classic Kewa (Santo Domingo) plant design encircling the piece.  Arthur alternated the direction the plants, giving the jar a more dramatic appearance.  The lower section is polished red and note on the base that the initial coils seem visible.  There is a “spirit line” or break in the painted design on the rim, which then extends down through the entire design!  This goes back to historic Kewa pottery when the artist would use the spirit line to release their spirit or connection from the vessel.  The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay. The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is not often that we see their pottery and especially with the use of such classic designs!
