$ 975.00

Tse-Pe Gonzales and his wife, Dora, began working together around 1971.  Dora would make the pottery and Tse-Pe would etch the designs. This bowl is a classic piece of their pottery.  The bowl is fully polished and the rim is two-toned black and sienna with sections of rounded sienna. There is an avanyu etched into the clay above the shoulder of the jar.   It is signed on the bottom in the clay “Tse-Pe and Dora”.  The jar comes with one of their business cards!   It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.   Tse-Pe and Dora worked individually from 1980 to 2000, but their early collaborative work remains innovative, creative, and of the highest quality even compared to many of today’s potters.
