She began making pottery in 1983. This bowl is highly polished and fired black with a sienna rim. The designs are etched into the clay. There is a feather pattern around the rim. The body of the jar has hummingbirds and flowers as the design. They are intricately etched into the clay. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Vickie Martinez”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. There are some color variations on the rim from the firing which can be seen in the photos.
