Martinez, Maria – Bowl with Cloud Design “Marie + Julian” (1920’s)
This is a classic bowl by Maria Martinez and her husband, Julian Martinez. Maria would make the pottery and Julian would paint the design. This bowl is a classic low, round shape. It is very highly polished and painted with a double layer cloud pattern around the rim. It may seem like a simple design, but it works perfectly with the highly polished surface. The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Marie + Julian”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
