Martinez, Maria – Bowl with Eagle Tail Design (1930’s)
This is a classic bowl by Maria Martinez and her husband, Julian. Maria would make the pottery and Julian would paint the design. This bowl is one of Maria’s favorite forms, with the low shoulder and sloping sides. It allowed for a maximum of design. The design is an eagle tail pattern which extends down from the rim. The bowl is fired a deep black. 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. There are some very light surface scratches.
