Haungooah, Martha Suazo – Brown Jar with Carved Avanyu (1975)
This is one of the few and the large piece we have had that was made and signed only by Martha Haungooah. Martha was typically known for making pottery for her husband, Art Cody Haungooah. She liked to create miniatures and they are typically beautifully constructed and polished. This jar is carved with an avanyu encircling the jar. It is carved into the negative space of the jar. The jar is fully polished and fired a reddish-brown. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Martha Haungooah”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. Definitely a rarity but elegant in form, design and color.
