$ 1,400.00

Blue Corn is often best known for her polychrome pottery, she also made exquisite black-on-black pottery. She learned to make pottery from Maria Martinez at San Ildefonso. This wide bowl is fully polished and painted with 53 feathers on the top of the bowl. The contrast of the matte feathers and the highly polished surface works perfectly!  The bowl is a great shape for the design as there is just a slight dip from the shoulder to the neck which gives added emphasis to the feather pattern.  The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay “Blue Corn, San Ildefonso”.  The bowl is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  There are a few light surface scratches seen in the photos.
