Tenorio, Robert – Open Bowl with Feather and Deer Designs

5.5"w x 3"h

$ 300.00

This is a traditional open bowl by Robert Tenorio.  The bowl is slipped white and is painted with wild spinach (black).  The exterior has a feather pattern.  The inside has four deer. The rim of the bowl has a “spirit line” or a break in the painted line around the rim.  This goes back to historic Kewa pottery when the artist would use the spirit line to release their spirit or connection from the vessel.  The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Robert T, Kewa”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
