$ 400.00

This is an unusual large bowl by Virginia Romero. She is one of the great names in keeping micaceous pottery alive at Taos Pueblo.  This bowl is made from micaceous clay.  It has a round body and sloping sides. There are two lizards in relief on the sides of the bowl.  They are stylized in form with a subtle raised appearance.  The piece was traditionally fired which created the colorations on the surface.  One of the lizards has a darker appearance from the smoke than the other.  This is a larger piece of her pottery.  The bowl is signed and dated on the bottom, “Virginia T. Romero”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
