Folwell, Polly Rose – Asymmetric Bowl with Feather Designs
Polly Rose Folwell is a daughter of Jody Folwell and a sister of Susan Folwell. She is known for use of classic designs on her traditional inspired Santa Clara pottery. This bowl is wide with an asymmetric opening. It is fired a dark brown coloration. The piece is fully etched with a cloud and feather pattern above the shoulder and water patterns below. Note the very tiny tightly etched “x’s” which fill in much of the design. They are a design associated with the Folwell family and represent stars. The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Polly Rose”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
