$ 2,800.00

This is a classic wide-shoulder bowl by Margaret Tafoya. The bowl is coil-built, carved, stone polished, and traditionally fired black.  The bowl is from the 1960s and has a sharp shoulder and flat top. The area above the shoulder is deeply carved with lightning and rain over a mesa design.  The design is repeated four times around the top of the bowl. Note how deep the carving is on this piece!  The area below the shoulder is fully polished.  The bowl was fired a glassy dark black coloration.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Margaret”  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  Definitely a classic of her work from this period!
