Dora Tse-Pé (1939- ) Photo by Jill Giller.Dora Tse-Pé (1939-present), from San Ildefonso Pueblo, is recognized as a master potter, and was awarded the title Master of Indian Market. She is and has always been a perfectionist in her art career. She achieves a beautifully smooth burnish and an exceptional black firing to her pottery. Along with Popovi Da and Tony Da, Dora experimented with and achieved success in two-tone firings, resulting in sienna accents to the blackware.

Dora Tse-Pé (1939- ) signatureDora was born at Zia Pueblo, the daughter of Candelaria Gachupin and granddaughter of Rosalie Toribio, both of whom “taught her the sacred and spiritual significance of the clay, of Mother Earth, Father Sun, and of the life-giving water.  Her mother and grandmother made sure she understood the importance of these forces in creating pottery. Like Rosalie Aguilar and Rose Gonzales a generation before, Dora married into San Ildefonso. In 1961, she married Tse-Pé, a fine potter.  His mother was Rose Gonzales, who also had married into San Ildefonso, but from San Juan Pueblo.” -Schaaf 2000

In this exquisite jar, completed by Dora in 1990, she achieved absolute striking beauty with simplicity.  The shape of the jar is itself a work of art with the undulating rim which she highlighted with sienna coloring.  The burnishing illustrates her absolute control over the polishing stone which left no tell-tale signs of stroke marks.

Provenance: from the collection of a family from Illinois
