$ 125.00

BN Spencer is one of the few Navajo male potters.  He is a son of Lorenzo Spencer. This bowl is coil-built and stone polished.  There is a carved bear paw on the top. The piece was traditionally fired to create blushes on the surface.  After it was fired, it was covered in pinon pitch in the manner of historic Navajo pottery.  The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “BN Spencer”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
