San Juan Deep Plain-ware Serving Bowl, c. 1890


This is a beautiful bowl, unusual in both its form and range of colors. It’s the subtleties that matter in a bowl like this and they are abundant here. In bright especially natural light, an explosion of colors emerge from the surface; tones of brown and red with several beautiful blue/black fire-clouds. This is a special jar, modestly beautiful.
