Pena, Juanita – Large Bowl with Rain Designs (1920’s)
This is a striking larger bowl by Juanita Pena. This bowl is an earlier piece of her pottery. It is fully polished and painted with a rain design. The little “dots” of rain on the design are definitely a signature of her painting style. The designs are definitely an unusual one with the geometric flow of pattern from one section to the next. The bowl is highly polished and fired a deep black. It is in very good condition with no cracks, restoration or repair. There are some light surface scratches. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Juanita”.
