Naranjo, Madeline – “Bears Strength” Bowl

3"w x 3"h

$ 300.00

This is an intricate seed jar by Madeline Naranjo.  Did you know that every piece is a pinch pot? Unlike most other Pueblo potters, she does not coil build her pottery, but each piece starts out as a ball of clay and she “pinches” it into its form.  That is quite a process!  This piece is entitled, “The Bear’s Strength is Returned to the Pueblo”.  The bowl is carved with four bears, each with a heartline.  They are each standing on a Pueblo cloud design.  It is a very intricately carved bowl for the size and the entire piece is fully polished.  Madeline’s designs are always innovative and beautifully executed.  The bowl is signed on the bottom.
