$ 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. There are also sienna medallions on each side with an inset piece of turquoise in each medallion.  The remainder of the bowl is deep black in coloration.  The bowl 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 to 2000, but their early collaborative work remains innovative, creative and of the highest quality even compared to many of today’s potters.
