Toya, Dominique – Mini 11 Rib Micaceous Melon Bowl
Dominique Toya is known for her intricately carved pottery with sharp ridged melon swirls. She has created her distinctive style of pottery using native clay and micaceous clay slips for the surface. This is one of her miniatures. The bowl has 12 ribs carving swirling around the piece. They are deeply carved and have a very sharp edge. They are slipped with a micaceous clay to give them the coloration. Uniquely, the top of the bowl has a triangular opening, which adds to the dramatic appearance of the rib spiral. The bowl has been traditionally fired and the coloration is striking! Dominique has won numerous awards for her pottery and continues to be one of the leading Jemez potters working today!
