Naranjo-Suina, Charlotte – Bowl with Avanyu (1970s)

2.5"w x 2"h

$ 125.00

Charlotte Naranjo-Suina (1936-2010) was a daughter of Nicolasa Naranjo and a sister of Roberta Naranjo.  She was a granddaughter of Tomasita Tafoya Naranjo and a great-niece of Margaret Tafoya.  Charlotte was married to Joseph Suina and the mother of Joseph, Deborah, and Dorothy Suina.  Charlotte was never a prolific potter, so we don’t often see her work.  It is coil-built, highly polished, and painted with a complex avanyu encircling the piece.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Charlotte”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  The last photo is of a wedding vase by Roberta Naranjo, and the bowl by Roberta Naranjo.
