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 small bowl is coil-built and fully polished.  It is etched with a Mimbres-inspired hummingbird on one side surrounded by feathers.  The opposite has a Yei figure, also surrounded by feathers. There are additional cloud and mountain designs.  Each animal is “two-toned” to make the piece black and sienna in coloration.  It is signed on the bottom, “Candelaria Suazo”.
