Availability: In stock

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 an exceptional piece of their pottery.  The piece is a round bowl and the design is an avanyu etched around the shoulder of the piece.  There is an inset piece of coral for the eye of the avanyu.  Above the back of the avanyu are clouds, which are two-tone in sienna.  Below the band of etched design, there is a single band of matte clay slip before the polished base of the bowl.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay “Tse-Pe and Dora”.    It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.   Tse-Pe and Dora worked individually from 1980-2000, but their early collaborative work remains innovative, creative and of the highest quality even compared to many of today’s potters.
