Naranjo, Kevin (b. 1972)
Naranjo, Marian Rose (b. 1950)
Kevin Naranjo and Maria Rose Naranjo worked together on pottery in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Marian made and polished the pottery while Kevin etched the designs. The shapes of their pottery are wonderful with the wide shoulder and sloping side. This jar is highly polished and etched with a medallion of a realistic deer. The deer is very detailed and extends down to the base. Around the back of the jar, along the rim, is an etched water serpent (avanyu). Below the water serpent are cloud and rain designs. The rim of the bowl, along with the deer, has been two-toned so that it is black-and sienna. This piece is from 1995 and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Kevin Naranjo and Maria Rose”.
