Suazo, Anita – Carved Red Bowl with Avanyu (1970s)
Anita Suazo is a daughter of noted potter Belen Tapia. This is one of her traditional bowls with deeply carved designs. There is an avanyu deeply carved into the clay and note how she used the negative space from the rim of the piece to connect and accent the design. The bowl is fully polished and the background is slipped with the traditional cream-colored clay. The bowl is in excellent condition and signed on the bottom in the clay, “Anita Suazo”.
