$ 5,800.00

This is a striking large polychrome bowl by Blue Corn from 1975.  She is certainly one of the most creative potters of her time with a varied used of clays and firing techniques to create her distinctive pottery.  This is one of her larger bowls and it is very round in shape creating a lot of surface area to polish and paint.  The bowl is rag polished with a cream-colored clay slip. The design around the neck is a star pattern. Around the center is a band of plant and leaf patterns. They are painted with black and ochre-colored clays.   It is a fluid design that accentuates the shape of the bowl.  It is not often that we see her work in such a large size.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Blue Corn, San Ildefonso 75”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
