Jemez Pueblo artist Marie Gachupin Romero had been making pottery of the finest quality for over 50 years. This terrace rim bowl is unusual as her specialty was figurative pottery, primarily storytellers and nacimientos.

This Jemez Pueblo bowl with two terrace extensions above the rim was made by Marie G. Romero (1927-2007) at the specific request of the previous owner.  This person stated that the potter did not ordinarily make terrace rim bowls but did make this one at his special request.

The interior of the bowl was beautifully designed with pictorial elements of animals—a Zia bird with a red chest, a deer or antelope; and a bird with a white body.  On the interior of one terrace projection, there is a beautiful image of a Corn Maiden, illustrated with corn plants surrounding her body and a bowl into which fall corn pollen.

The bowl is signed Marie G. Romero Jemez.  Artist Signature - Marie Gachupin Romero, Jemez Pueblo PotterOn the exterior of each terrace projection is a single corn plant with corn and pollen.  The base color of the interior and exterior of the bowl is a soft tan which was polished.  The bowl is signed Marie G. Romero Jemez.
