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.
