Santa Clara Redware Dish with Painted Decoration


American Indian Artist

Vintage 1970's handmade, polished red-ware dish from the Santa Clara pueblo in northern New Mexico.

Signed by the artist with their monogram, which resembles a cloud symbol with a Y hanging from it.

This ceramic shallow bowl is handbuilt using coils of clay that are smoothed and fired, then polished with smooth river stones until glossy.

They are then painted with yucca brushes and natural pigments and fired again.  They can stay red, taken from the clay used, or by reduction firing (starving the fire of oxygen) they will turn jet black.

Measures 5 1/4" wide by 1 1/2" tall 

This dish is decorated with four colors and uses traditional decoration that was re-introduced to these tribes during archeological excavations around the turn of the 19th Century.

Ruby uses this dish as a ring tray, keeping her most often worn favorites displayed beautifully on her dressing table...
