Rosalie and Joe Aguilar created some exceptional carved pottery during their brief career working together.  They initially began making black-on-black pottery and then in the 1930’s, they began to carve designs into their pottery. This larger jar is carved with cloud, rain, lightning, and mesa designs.  The carving is done using the negative space of the jar as part of the design elements.  The piece is fully polished and fired to a gunmetal metallic coloration.  The jar is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed, “Rosalie + Joe” on the bottom in the clay.

She learned to make pottery from her mother-in-law Susana and Joe painted most of their pieces of pottery. In the 1930's Rosalie was among the first, along with Rose Gonzales (1909-1989) to begin carving pottery.
