Naranjo, Christina – Bowl with Cloud Designs (1960’s)
Christina Naranjo was a daughter of SaraFina Tafoya and a sister of Margaret Tafoya and Camilio Tafoya. She was known for her classic style carved Santa Clara pottery. This is one of the smallest pieces of her work we have seen. It is fully carved with a cloud and lightning pattern which encircles the piece. The bowl is fully polished. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Christina Naranjo”. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. Christina has a wonderful legacy in the work of her daughters Mary Cain and Teresita Naranjo, as well as her great-granddaughters Tammy Garcia and Autumn Borts.
