Gachupin, Laura – Small Bowl with Corn Design
Laura Gachupin is one of the leading potters from Jemez Pueblo. This small bowl is both painted and polished. The bottom is stone polished red and the rim is polished tan. The central band of the bowl is painted with a corn plant, which is very intricately painted. Note the white clay for the corn pollen. As the bowl is turned there is a cloud and rain design along with the sun. For a small piece, it is very tightly painted. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay.
