Baca, Angela – Red Melon Bowl with 32 Ribs (2000s)
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 matte so it contrasts with the polished surface. The bowl has 32 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.
