Tafoya, LuAnn – Red Bowl with Rain Designs (2019)
The is a new bowl from LuAnn Tafoya. She is a daughter of Margaret Tafoya and learned to make the large vessels from her mother. This bowl is a very round shape and carved with a classic rain and cloud design. The bowl is highly polished and in the recessed (carved away) areas, there is a cream colored clay slip which is applied before the piece is fired. The last photo shows the clay which is used to fill in the background areas. The pottery of LuAnn Tafoya is an important continuation of the traditions of her family and the pueblo. It is signed on the bottom in the clay.
