Gonzales, Rose – Small Jar with Rain 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 jar is both a classic shape with a wide shoulder and short neck. The jar has a rain and cloud pattern painted in black-on-black style. It is highly polished and fired a deep black. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Rose” on the bottom in the clay.
