Coriz, Arthur & Hilda – Open Bowl with Plant and Cloud Designs (1990s)

8"w x 4"h

$ 500.00

This is a classic open bowl by Arthur and Hilda Coriz.  Hilda would coil-build each piece and then they would be painted by Arthur. The painting was done with natural clay slips (white and red) and then wild spinach (black).  This bowl has a rain cloud design on the outside. The inside has a large plant pattern.  The rim of the bowl has a  “spirit line” or break in the painted design on the rim, which then extends down through the entire design.  This goes back to historic Kewa pottery when the artist would use the spirit line to release their spirit or connection from the vessel.  The lower section is polished red.  The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Arthur and Hilda Coriz”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
