Monahan, Grace – Wedding Vase (1960’s)

Grace Monahan (1901-73) wasn’t one of the original potters in the 1937 Maricopa Pottery Cooperative, she worked alongside celebrated artists like Ida Redbird, Mary Juan, Mabel Sunn and Alma Lawrence, and today her work has a similar importance. Her designs are distinctive enough so that most of her pieces are instantly recognizable without the signature.  Each piece is traditionally hand crafted from native clay with the paddle and anvil method, iron oxide red slip is decorated with black mesquite sap paint, pit fired.  This wedding vase is a classic of her style with designs painted on both sides along with the rim.  The piece is signed on the bottom, “G. M”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There are a few small blisters in the slip near the base, which can be seen in the last photo.
