Sanchez, Kathy “Wan Povi” – Black and Sienna Seedpot with Avanyu Design
Kathy “Wan Povi” Sanchez is a great-great granddaughter of Maria Martinez and a sister of Barbara Gonzales. This bowl is fully polished and etched with an avanyu and feather pattern on the top of the piece. The area of the rim and the feather pattern are highlighted in sienna. The remainder of the bowl is fully polished to a high shine. The bowl is signed, “Wan Povi” on the bottom. While Kathy makes little pottery today, the technical expertise of her shape, polish and design are certainly evident. The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
