Gonzales, Lorenzo – Polychrome Plate with Feather Pattern (1991)
Lorenzo Gonzales was a brother of potter Blue Corn and the father of John Gonzales, Marie Gonzales, and Robert Gonzales. It is not often that we come across his pottery. His pottery was always traditional in style. This plate is matte with black and red painted feathers. The feathers are separated by rain and cloud designs. There is a precision in the painting of this classic design. It is signed in the clay, “Lorenzo”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
