Naranjo, Reycita – Fully Polished Bowl with Carved Avanyu (1982)
Reycita Naranjo was a daughter of noted potter Pablita Chavarria. This piece is carved with an avanyu (water serpent) encircling the piece. The inside of the bowl is fully polished. The carving on Reycita’s pottery is more shallow with crisp lines. Her polishing creates an even tonality to the surface. The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Reycita Naranjo”. The bowl has a ribbon from the 1982 Eight Northern Pueblos Show.
