This is one of the few pieces signed by both Art Cody Haungooah and his wife, Martha. Martha would make and polish the pottery. Art would etch the designs into the clay after it was fired. The bowl is fully polished and fired red. There is a central medallion that is etched into the clay. There are a Mimbres style lizard, rabbit, and quail as the design. There is a piece of coral inset in the quail. Around the shoulder of the bowl is an etched cloud design. The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Art & Martha Haungooah”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
