Acoma 3-Color Olla with Cloud Forms and Warm Surface, c. 1920
Beautiful example with softly rounded cloud-like elements among many geometric designs. What elevates this thinly potted beauty is the warm surface patina from pueblo home use. The 1920’s and 1930’s produced some beautiful pottery that is wrongly under-appreciated. This is a fine example of that creating a collecting opportunity! I really like this old Acoma.
