Naranjo, Christina & Mary Cain – Large Carved Bowl with Avanyu (1970’s)
This is a large round bowl by Christina Naranjo and her daughter, Mary Cain. The bowl is coil built and was made by Christina. It was carved by Mary Cain. The design is an avanyu (water serpent) encircles the bowl. It is deeply carved and has a flowing design. Note the clouds extending down in the negative space from the rim. It is not often that we see their collaborative pieces! The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Christina Naranjo + Mary Cain”. The bowl is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
