Rosita de Herrera is a daughter of noted Ohkay Owingeh potter Tomasita Montoya and a sister of Dominguita Sisneros.  This bowl is coil-built. The top rim and the base are fully polished red. The center is incised with cloud and mountain designs in the Potsuwi’i style.  Rosita added a micaceous clay slip to the incised designs which give it a bit of a sparkle. The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Rosita de Herrera”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
