Aragon, John – Bowl with Mimbres Insects
John Aragon is known for his use of Mimbres imagery on his pottery. John learned to make pottery from his mother, Florence Aragon. This new bowl is very tightly painted with various Mimbres insects across the entire surface! There are insects include bees, crickets, dragonflies, caterpillars and more. I counted over 100 different insects, and then lost track! Each one has different fine-line designs which make up the body designs. John has an amazing ability to fit so many images onto one piece and still have it look cohesive! The bowl is signed on the bottom.
