Tafoya-Sanchez, Linda – Horno Oven and Base (1986)
This is an early piece by Linda Tafoya-Sanchez. She is a granddaughter of noted potter Margaret Tafoya and a daughter of Lee & Betty Tafoya. She is known for her intricately carved pottery. It is a clay representation of a “horno oven”. This is the round oven used to bake bread at the pueblos. This is two pieces. The stand is carved with a space for the oven to sit. The recessed area is matte while the rest is polished. The oven part is fully polished and has a half-round door and the opening for the heat to escape during the baking process. It is a charming smaller piece and perfectly executed. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Linda Tafoya”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
