Availability: In stock

This plate by Robert Tenorio has a complex series of designs.  The plate is painted with wild spinach (black) and red and copper colored clay slips.  The center of the plate has two fish.  They are surrounded by four birds, each looking at the fish in the center. There is something charming and whimsical about the design! Each of the fish and birds is highlighted with red and copper clay slips.  There i 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 back of the plate is fully polished with a red clay slip.  It is signed on the back, in the clay, “Robert Tenorio, Kewa”.
