Tafoya, Sherry – Wedding Vase with Carved Bear Paw
This is a classic wedding vase by Sherry Tafoya. It is coil-built and carved with a bear paw on one side. Inside the bear paw are prayer feathers. The remainder of the piece is fully polished. It is fired a deep black. The complexity of her designs is certainly reminiscent of the work of her aunt, Teresita Naranjo. It is signed on the bottom, “Sherry Tafoya”.
