Barbara Gonzales Tahn Moo Whe San Ildefonso Pueblo Avanyu Heads Pottery Jar

We are offering a wonderful polished blackware Figural Avanyu heads and geometric design wrapped pottery vase by Barbara Gonzales, Tahn Moo Whe (born 1947), a very talented potter from San Ildefonso Pueblo. This exceptional piece has a figural Avanyu "Water Serpent Diety" with turquoise and coral inlay and geometric designs. Her mother was Anita Martinez, also a potter, as were her grandparents, Adam and Santana Martinez.  Her great-grandmother was the legendary Maria Martinez. Signed on the bottom. Barbara not only took traditions from her family, she personalized her work with "slipped-designed polychrome", as she describes it.  This process was achieved by utilizing inlaid turquoise and coral on etched black and sienna wares, most notably her spider designs which she created in 1973.  In excellent overall condition.  No chips, cracks or repairs.  Crisp & clean!  Please study the photos as they are a part of the description. Measures 2 3/4" by 5".
