This bowl is by Ergil Vallo, also known as, “Dalawepi”. The bowl is coil built, stone polished, and traditionally fired black. It is fully incised with a Morning Katsina, Sunface, Mimbres Ram and Deer, Corn, and traditional Acoma patterns. The background area is a “rainbow” of colors, for which he was known. These were applied after the firing. The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Ergil Vallo, Dalawepi”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
