POTTERY BOWL BY PAULINE ROMERO JEMEZ PUEBLO

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

This exquisite bowl was handmade by Pauline Romero from Jemez Pueblo.  Pauline learned the basics of the Jemez traditional way of making pottery from her mother, Persingula R. Tosa. Early in her career as a potter, Pauline was making bowls and vases with the soft red Jemez slip, then using the sgraffito technique to scratch butterfly and feather designs into her surfaces. Then she moved into making melon shapes using red and buff slips.  Signed

3  3/4” tall x 5  1/8″ long x 5  1/8″

Within the Jemez Pueblo there are many exceptional potters.  The work is generally characterized by the buff and red clays used, and the range of styles and subjects.   Storyteller, figures, sgrafitto designs, wedding vases, and melon pots are a few of their favorites.  Before the arrival of the Spanish, Jemez was known for its traditional black-on-white ware, but production of this type of pottery died out in the early 18th century.  There was a revival of Jemez pottery-making in the early 20th century inspired and influenced by Zia pottery designs, but it was not until the 1960’s and 70’s that a significant number of Jemez potters began producing high-quality work using traditional methods.
