Sanchez, Kathy “Wan Povi” – Black & Sienna Bowl with Grasshopper and Dragonfly
This is a complex bowl by Kathy “Wan Povi” Sanchez (b. 1950). Kathy is a great-great-granddaughter of Maria Martinez and a sister of Barbara Gonzales. This bowl is round and fully polished. There is a grasshopper on one side and a dragonfly on the opposite side. The area around the grasshopper is two-toned sienna. The same with the wings and body of the dragonfly. The bowl is signed, “Wan Povi” on the bottom. While Kathy makes little pottery today, the technical expertise of her shape, polish, and design is certainly evident. The bowl is in vexcellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
