Desideria Montoya Sanchez was a sister of noted potter Maria Martinez.  She often worked with her husband Donicio, who painted some of her pottery.  Her children Juanita Roybal, Pilar Aguilar, and Santiago Sanchez did not continue in the pottery making tradition.  However, Santiago’s wife, Angelita Sanchez is a well-known potter.   She also created elegant black-on-black pottery, but her forms and painted designs are distinctly different from those of Maria & Julian.

Sanchez, Desideria – Large Jar with Bird Wing Designs (1920’s)

Desideria Montoya Sanchez was a sister of noted potter Maria Martinez.  She was known for her traditional pottery and use of both classic and innovative designs. This jar is from the 1920’s and has a wide shoulder and sloping sides.  There are three sections of design, each with a stylized bird wing pattern.  There are cloud patterns above the wings and below is a checkerboard design.  Separating each of the sections are a series of small dots.  The jar is highly polished and fired a slivery black coloration.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Desideria”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It’s great to see a piece of her pottery with such complex designs.

Sanchez, Desideria – Bowl with Cloud & Wind Designs (1920’s)

Desideria Montoya Sanchez was a sister of noted potter Maria Martinez.  She was known for her traditional pottery and use of both classic and innovative designs. This bowl is a round shape and painted with a series of bold line cloud and wind patterns. The thick lines and the style of the imagery give the bowl a very modern appearance and are certainly unusual in the imagery of San Ildefonso.  The firing of the bowl has given it a somewhat gunmetal appearance in areas.  The gunmetal coloration is due to the heat of the firing and note how areas are more black and others are more metallic.   The bowl is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Desideria”.

Sanchez, Desideria – Bowl with Bird Wing Motif

Desideria Montoya Sanchez was a sister of noted potter Maria Martinez.  She was known for her traditional pottery and use of both classic and innovative designs. This bowl is painted with a bird wing pattern.  It is interesting that this design has a Hopi-Tewa style appearance to the design.  Many of the early San Ildefonso potters were very interested in the work of Nampeyo of Hano and incorporated Hopi designs into their work.  The imagery was often stylized, such as the feather pattern at the round end of the wing.  The bowl was fired with to a nearly gunmetal appearance.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Desideria”.
