Kewa pottery is slipped with cream colored clay on which the design is painted.  In this bowl, it appears that an orange or yellow slip was used for the interior and exterior of the bowl, however, it was the firing temperature that turned the cream slip to an orange color.

The design is a double row of black triangles enclosed with an upper and lower framing line. The rim is black and has a line break that continues through the design on the vessel wall.

 

Condition: there was a vertical crack extending down from the rim which has been stabilized and the ceremonial line break on the rim has been abraded slightly.

Provenance: from the extensive collection of a Santa Fe resident who has unfortunately moved to another city and found it necessary to greatly reduce her collection.
