Sanchez, Russell – Black & Green Bowl with Bear Lid
This bear lidded bowl by Russell Sanchez is from around 2000. It is fully polished and has a bear lid. Note how the bear has its head just a bit turned! The bowl is fully polished green and fired black and then “two-toned” black and green. The green band around the rim is one of the early innovations in Russell’s pottery which was unique in the 1980s. The coloration is stunning as is the perfectly polished surface. The bowl and the lid are both signed in the clay, “Russell Sanchez”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
