Alternate View of inside of bowl.

Kewa Pueblo pottery food bowls assume the most beautiful patina from daily use.  The cream slip with which they are coated absorbs the oils from foods and then turns a beautiful brown with an added sheen.  Not only is the interior enhanced with an outstanding patina, the exterior assumes a patina from the hands of the handler. This one is no exception.  It is the size bowl used for serving food at the table, not for eating from.  This size is also used for preparation of bread dough when only a small amount of bread is being prepared. 

This bowl is slipped on the interior with a polished cream finish, has a black rim, and natural stone-polished underbody with a very wide rag-wiped red band just below the design field.  The design is uncluttered and open in a minimalist fashion.

 

Condition: The historic bowl appears to have been used as there is evidence of a wear pattern on the interior although it is only slightly worn, mostly near the bottom of the bowl. The exterior is in excellent condition.

Provenance: this Kewa Pueblo Decorated Deep Serving Bowl is from a private collection
