Blue Corn (1921 - 1999)
Blue Corn was one of the great innovative San Ildefonso potters of the late 1900s. She is often best known for her polychrome pottery but began her career making black pottery. This bowl is from the 1970s. It is very highly stone polished to a glossy shine. The piece is very tightly painted with a series of clouds, rain, and lightning around the rim. The piece was fired to a silvery gunmetal coloration. It is signed in the clay, “Blue Corn”. The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
