Availability: Out of stock

This is one of the few wedding vases made by Dora Tse-Pe.  She learned to make pottery from her mother-in-law Rose Gonzales and continued her work in a similar style of cameo carving. This vase has a water serpent (avanyu) carved around the shoulder of the piece.  There is a single inset piece of turquoise for the eye.  It is fully polished, as is the lower half of the wedding vase. The two spouts are slipped with a micaceous clay.  The contrast of the matte and polished surfaces work perfectly on this jar.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Dora of San Ildefonso, 1990”.
