A deep bowl with a wide mouth made of black earthenware. The upper half of the bowl is decorated with a horizontal and diagonal design in a lighter shade of black and rougher texture than the smooth black surface.
A beautiful, functional object made by an award-winning artist from the Santa Clara Pueblo people.
A squat, gracefully rounded pot with a mouth that is slightly smaller than the widest circumference of the pot, and a tapered base. The interior is colored white. There is a band of black along the brim. The exterior is decorated with a pattern of alternating squares: brownish-orange squares divided vertically by a white stripe broken by three thin black lines; and white squares divided diagonally with wave-like black shapes.
An example of Pueblo pottery produced in the early twentieth century. It draws on traditional techniques and styles but was probably produced for the booming Native southwestern ceramic market.
