4.5"w x 2.5"h

$ 600.00

This bowl by Santana and Adam Martinez is a smaller but classic piece of their pottery.  Adam was the youngest son of Maria Martinez, and Santana (his wife) painted Maria’s pottery in the 1940-50’s.  The entire surface of this is fully polished.  The design was then painted around the top shoulder of the bowl.  It is a classic feather pattern encircling the piece.  The bowl was traditionally fired to a very dark black appearance.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Santana + Adam”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  Definitely a classic piece!
