Nicolasa Naranjo was a daughter of potter Tomasita Tafoya Naranjo and a niece of Margaret Tafoya.  She created a wide variety of pieces over the years of her pottery career, including polychrome pieces as well as black-on-black pottery.  This is a classic large bowl that is fully polished red.  It is painted with buff-colored clay to create the avanyu that encircles the bowl.  The design is then outlined with white clay.  The deep red coloration creates a striking complement to the buff coloration.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Nicolasa”.
