This is a large, wide bowl by Garrett Maho.  He is known for his traditional and innovative Hopi-Tewa pottery.  This wide bowl is coil-built, stone polished, and painted with bee-weed (black) and red clay slip.  Along the neck of the bowl, there are four Shalako Katsina figures.  Separating them are four of his ravens.  Note the detail in the design of the Katsinas and the birds!  The side of the bowl has geometric cloud, rain, mountains, and pottery shard designs.  It is tightly painted and the designs match the shape and scale of the bowl.  It was traditionally fired, which created the coloration on the surface of the piece.  It is signed, “Garrett Maho”.
