Gonzales, Rose – Wide Bowl with Rain and Cloud 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 wide bowl is deeply carved with her classic style of rounded edge carving. The design is a series of cloud and rain patterns which flow through the negative space of the shoulder of the bowl. The bowl is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Rose” on the bottom in the clay.
