Youngblood, Mela – Lidded Bowl with Cloud Designs
This is an unusual lidded bowl by Mela Youngblood. She was a daughter of Margaret Tafoya and the mother of Nathan Youngblood and Nancy Youngblood. The bowl is deeply carved with a cloud and lightning design. It is highly polished. The lid has a handle and it is also highly polished. The piece is fired a deep black. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Mela Youngblood”. Definitely a classic by Mela Youngblood.
