McHorse, Christine -Micaceous Bowl with Bear Lid
Christine McHorse is well known for her sculptural pottery. Each piece is coil built and has very thin walls. This lidded bowl is from the 1990s. The bowl itself is very thin-walled and made with micaceous clay. The piece is lidded with a bear and a fish. The bear is very sculptural and the fish has almost a Mimbres style to the form. Check out the little detail in the eye! The mica clay is very reflective on this piece. It is signed on the bottom of the bowl and on the bottom of the lid, “C McHorse”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. Today Christine is creating more sculptural works with her pottery currently in the “Dark Light” exhibit which has traveled nationally.
