Baca, Angela – Large Melon Bowl with 32 Ribs
This is one of the largest pieces we have had by Angela Baca. She was famous throughout her career for her melon ribbed pottery. The form is derived from the melon and squash grown in the area and so there is always an organic style to the shape. This piece is round and has 32 ribs carved into the clay. The entire surface of the bowl is fully polished, including the space between each of the ribs!. The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Angela Baca” and it is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
