Virginia Romero – Pitcher with Twisted Handle (1970’s)
This is a fascinating piece by Virginia Romero. She is one of the great names in keeping micaceous pottery alive at Taos Pueblo. This pitcher is made from micaceous clay. There is a twisted handle and there are impressed flower designs on the side. There are some great fire clouds on the bowl. Interestingly, we have only had two other pieces of her work come back into the gallery since 2000! The bowl is signed and dated on the bottom, “Virginia Romero”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
