Suazo, Candelaria – Black & Sienna Bowl with Butterfly and Feathers
Candelaria Suazo is a daughter of potters Joe and Santanita Suazo. Her sisters include Martha Suazo (the wife of Art Cody Haungooah), Margie Naranjo, Mae Tapia, and Shirley Duran. She learned to make pottery from her mother. This miniature bowl is coil-built and fully polished. It is etched with a stylized butterfly in one section. The remainder has a classic feather design. The rim and butterfly are “two-toned” to make the piece black and sienna in coloration. It is signed on the bottom, “Candelaria Suazo”.
