Tse-Pe & Dora – Bowl with Black & Sienna Deer Tracks (1974)

3.25"w x 2.25"h

$ 750.00

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 jar is a classic piece of their pottery.  The bowl is fully polished and the rim is two-toned black and sienna. The sienna also dips down the sides, creating deer tracks in design.  The remainder of the bowl is nearly a gunmetal 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.
