Yepa, Alvina – Melon Bowl with 58 Ribs
Alvina Yepa (b. 1954) learned to make pottery from her mother, Felipita Nonche Yepa. She began making pottery in the 1980’s and in 1987 won First Place and Best of Division for her pottery at Santa Fe Indian Market. This melon bowl is deeply carved with 58 ribs. Each rib is cut into the clay and then stone polished. The result is a striking appearance to the piece. The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Alvina Yepa”.
