$ 550.00

This piece is an unsigned Acoma open bowl from the 1940s.  It is coil-built and painted with native clay slips and bee-weed (black).  The bowl is thin-walled and has classic Acoma designs.  There is two swirling birds on the sides. They are separated by extended rain cloud designs.  The rim has a triangular mountain pattern.  It is also the rim that makes the pieces so interesting, as it is turned inward creating an “infinity” rim.  It is a form that can be seen in Acoma pottery for nearly a century.  The bowl was traditionally fired to create slight color variations on the surface.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
