Dominguita Sisneros Naranjo is a daughter of noted Ohkay Owingeh potter Tomasita Montoya and a sister of Rosita de Herrera. This bowl is coil-built and polished red on the neck and the base. The central band is deeply carved with mountain, rain, and cloud designs. The designs are higlighted with red and white clay slips. The interior of the bowl is polished tan, the natural color of the clay. This color combination is visually striking and enhances the design. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Dominguita Sisneros”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
