$ 2,500.00

This is an exceptional large wedding vase by Teresita Naranjo.  She is famous for her deeply carved pottery.  Each piece was coil built, carved, stone polished, and traditionally fired outdoors.  She was a daughter of noted potter Christina Naranjo and a sister of Mary Cain.  This wedding vase by Teresita is from the 1980s and at the peak of her deeply carved designs. The body of the piece is round and it is fully carved with cloud, rain, and bird wing designs.  It is a deep red coloration and in the background area surrounding the carving, it is slipped with the traditional white clay.  The spouts are elongated but proportional and the entire piece is highly polished.  The wedding vase was traditionally fired red.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Teresita Naranjo” and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  Simply stunning.
