Gonzales, Rose – Small Bowl with Rain and Lightning Designs
Rose Gonzales is often considered the first at San Ildefonso Pueblo to make carved pottery. However, over the course of her career, she created a variety of styles including plainware, painted and carved pottery. This bowl is one of her classic shapes and designs. It has a sharp shoulder and the bowl is carved in her “cameo style”. The design is a series of rain and lightning patterns. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Rose”. It is in excellent condition with no crack, restoration or repair.
