Andrew Padilla Squash Vase Laguna Pot
Andrew Padilla is the son of famous Laguna potter Gladys Paquine who, along with his grandmother, Reycita Padilla taught him the art of shaping clumps of clay into spectacular pieces of art. Andrew was born in 1956 and started his potting career early, hardly at ten years of age. He concentrates in white-ware melon bowls, wedding vases, jars in the shape of squash, usually imprinted by his famous bear paw. His art has been recognized by means of awards at the prestigious Santa Fe Indian Market, the New Mexico State Fair and elsewhere. (Greg Schaaf, 2,000 Artist Biographies.) Andrew's signature is the almost velvet-like finish of his white pottery.
The present offering is a fine example of Andrew's squash vases. It measures 6 inches tall by 7 1/2 inches wide, and is painted in the velvet-like finish white slip that Andrew has made famous.
