This is an unusual piece by Lois Gutierrez. It is from 1988. It is a cup inspired by the pottery found at Mesa Verde (see the last photo). This piece is coil built and slipped with white clay. It is painted with three bands of design. A corn band, clouds, and then lightning. It was traditionally fired. It is signed on the bottom, “Lois 1988”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
