Delicate in stature but big in design and form, this stunning, small bowl was created by well-known Santa Clara potter Gwen Tafoya. The piece varies red to black in color, the gradient in color due to firing, and is covered in masterful sgraffito, all done by hand. Gwen, known for her etched roses, hummingbirds, and butterflies, includes all three on this piece, with each hummingbird showcasing a small turquoise accent at the eye, and the single butterfly, a small coral accent. The piece is finished with a stunning, high-shine hand polish, another skill at which Gwen excels. 3 5/8″ tall x 4″ wide.
