Naranjo, Forrest – Bowl with Dragonfly Story
Forrest Naranjo is a grandson of Rose Naranjo and a son of Bernice Naranjo. He learned to make pottery from his mother. This bowl is coil built, stone polished and traditionally fired brown and then etched with designs. This bowl has an asymmetric rim and the designs are etched into the clay around the top of the jar. The design is an interesting story of the birth and various stages of the dragonfly. The various stages of the larvae and then the dragonfly itself can be seen! The style of his etching is modern yet pulls from traditional Pueblo designs. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
