Colorful Bird Bowl Santo Domingo Rose Pacheco Pottery
Rose Pacheco of the Kewa Pueblo (formerly known as and still widely referred to as the Santo Domingo Pueblo) was born in 1968 and has been active making pottery since the late 1970's. She is the daughter of potters Gilbert and Paulita Pacheco and niece of Robert Tenorio.
Rose is a traditional potter; her wares are hand-coiled from locally gathered clays, decorated with popular centuries old animal and floral motifs with natural paints derived from area plants applied by yucca brush and then finally pit fired outdoors. An egg white coating followed a vegetable oil imbues the work with the final soft sheen.
The present piece is decorated with four large, brilliantly painted Santo Domingo stylized birds and floral designs. It measures 7 in tall by 8 in wide.
