Cresencia Tafoya was the mother of noted potters Harriet Tafoya and Annie Baca. This is one of the largest painted pieces of hers we have had in the gallery. The wedding vase is coil-built and fully polished. Note the handle is twisted and the spouts are her signature square shape on the ends. The piece is painted around the shoulder with a cloud, rain, and sun patterns. The piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Cresencia”.
