Artist Signature - Garnet Pavatea (1915-1981) Flower GirlThis salad bowl with five small salad plates appears to be an early creation by Garnet, perhaps as early as the 1960s, but that cannot be determined as none of them is dated.  The set was slipped in red clay, stone polished, and left without decoration of any kind.  Each of the six pieces is signed with her full name. 

 

Condition:  very good condition with some loss of red slip on bottom of large bowl

Provenance: from the estate of a Santa Fe family formerly of Arizona
