Suazo, Candelaria – Black & Sienna Jar with Hummingbirds & Butterflies
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 has a low shoulder and sloping sides. It is highly polished and etched with two hummingbirds and two butterflies. They are surrounded by feather and cloud designs. The hummingbirds and butteflies are “two-toned” to make it black and sienna in coloration. Note the high polish and delicate etching on this piece. It is signed on the bottom, “Candelaria Suazo”.
