This black polishhed bear is by Adam Martinez. Adam was the youngest son of Maria Martinez, and Santana (his wife) painted Maria’s pottery in the 1940-50’s. Adam made clay bear figures in the 1980’s and 1990s and they are just signed by him. They are clay and stone polished. This bear has a stylized head an body. It is signed on the bottom “Adam”.
