This is a beautiful piece of Native American artwork and is signed by the artist. Celestina Tafoya Naranjo (1912 - 1999) was a potter from Santa Clara Pueblo. She learned the traditional Santa Clara way to make pottery from watching and working with her mother, Pasqualita Tafoya, as she was growing up. Celestina was making pottery for the marketplace by the early 1930's and made pottery almost the rest of her life. She later married Salvador Naranjo.Celestina had an excellent reputation for her redware and polychromes, as well as her blackware plates and bowls. She signed most of her pieces: "Celestina Naranjo Santa Clara". Sometimes she added: "Pue" or "Pueblo" to that. This blackware piece has the full "Pueblo" afterwards.
She has exhibited at Santa Fe Indian Market and Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Arts and Crafts Show. Among her favorite designs are rain clouds and kiva steps.
