Caroline Lucero-Carpio is from Isleta Pueblo.  She studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts and has been working in clay for over 40 years.  She is also known for her bronzes.  Her pottery is coil-built, stone polished, and fired.  In 2000 she received a SWAIA fellowship and was Artist of the Year for the Indian Arts and Craft Association, (IACA). This is one of her classic bowls with an opening on the side. There are two corn plants swirling out in relief from the opening. The ears of corn and husk are applique, meaning that they are added to the surface of the piece. The remainder is stone polished. The piece is fired white.  It is signed on the bottom, “Caroline Carpio”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
