$ 325.00

Florence Naranjo is a daughter of noted potters Rosalie & Joe Aguilar and a granddaughter of Susana Aguilar.  Her brother, Alfred Aguilar, is also a well-known potter at San Ildefonso Pueblo.  This is one of the only polychrome pieces of pottery we have seen!   Typically, she was known for her black-on-black painted pottery.  The jar is slipped with a white (cream) colored clay.  It was then fully painted with black and red rain, cloud and snow patterns.  The jar is a classic San Ildefonso water jar shape.  It is signed on the bottom, “Florence Naranjo”.  It is good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
