Baca, Angela – Red Melon Bowl with 16 Ribs (1970s)
Angela Baca was famous for her carved melon bowls. This bowl is very deeply carved and each rib is stone polished. On this bowl, the space between the ribs is also fully polished, which takes more time and creates a more dramatic appearance. The bowl has 16 straight ribs, extending from the rim to the base. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Angela Baca” and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
