This is an intricately designed wide-shoulder bowl by Jennifer Tafoya.  She is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures.  This bowl is fully polished and has three realistic mountain lions etched into the clay on the top.  There is an additional single medallion with a mountain lion.  Each mountain lion is different and highly detailed in their fur!  All the designs are etched into the clay and then highlighted with additional clay colors.  The bottom of the bowl has an avanyu encircling the piece.  Jennifer continues to not just be creative in design but in technique.  All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips.  The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jennifer Tafoya”.
