Santa Clara Pueblo Redware Pottery Jar W/ Bear Paw Imprints

Tonita Tafoya (1930-2010)

Santa Clara Pueblo Redware Pottery Jar W/ Bear Paw Imprints

We are offering a wonderful hand thrown burnished pottery jar crafted by Tonita Tafoya (1930-2010) of Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico. Her work is rarely found! This redware pot is decorated with traditional design of four (4) incised bear paw imprints. The squat bulbous form with tapered neck measures 3 3/4" tall x 4" across in diameter at the widest. In very good overall condition. There are a few scattered light scuffs and scratches - barely worth mentioning but for accuracy's sake.  No cracks, no chips, no repairs. Please study the photos as they are a part of the description. N2076

Tonita was the daughter of extraordinary potter Severa Tafoya and the sister of Angela Baca, known for her melon jars. Her sons Paul Speckled Rock & Ray Tafoya are also accomplished potters.
