San Ildefonso Blackware Bowl by Maria and Santana Martinez new

This handsome blackware bowl is signed “Marie & Santana,” indicating it is the work of legendary San Ildefonso master potter Maria Martinez and her daughter-in-law Santana. After Maria’s husband Julian’s death in 1943, and until approximately 1954, Santana and Maria made pottery together and signed it this way. This example has a spectacular gunmetal finish, and is in excellent condition. The bowl is decorated with an abstract geometric design, which could be interpreted as alternating M’s and S’s representing the artists’ names. The bowl measures 4” height and 5 ¾” diameter.
