San Juan Pueblo Native American Pottery Bowl Norman De Herrera Ohkay Owingeh
Circa 90s or 2000 San Juan Pueblo Ohkay Owingeh pottery with normal wear on surface. Hand coiled, stone polished, carved, pit-fired, and poly-chrome painted geometric design pottery bowl. Norman De Herrera is the son of Rosita De Herrera, both known for continuing the San Juan style tradition. Built with local red clay, the bowl is rimmed at the top and bottom by smooth stone-polished bands highlighting the red base. The girth is decorated with a pleasing band of traditional geometric designs in terracotta red and buff, with carved out pieces adding the dimension and texture that both De Herreras are known for.
It may just be me, but their pieces, being thicker than some, have a rounded smoothness that just feel pleasant to hold I had 4 of their bowls! Artist: Signed Norman De Herrera San Juan Pue. Dimensions: 3 1/8" H x 3 3/4" W.
