Lustrous black burnished pottery bowl by Fidel Archuleta of San Ildefonso Pueblo, circa 1970s.
Traditionally hand built with coils of native clay, stone burnished surface is reverse painted with the slip, pit fired to black.
7" diameter by 3 1/2" deep, very nice original condition, no cracks or chips or scratches.
Not much info available on Fidel, must have had a short career, but was very talented, look at the graceful shape.
Buyer pays $25.00 for shipping and insurance.
