This small lidded bowl is exquisite. This style of pot in San Ildefonso is referred to as a squash bowl. The Tewa word actually translates to “squash”. If you look under the lid, the squash ribs end, and they are flat around the opening, representing the actual shape of a squash. The sienna tones at the top of the piece depict the actual colors of a squash when it is picked in the fall. This is the style that was made by Desideria Sanchez and Ramona Sanchez Gonzales. Russell has made a tight fitting black polished lid, adding some height to the bowl. Inset into the lid is a high grade Lone Mountain turquoise stone. It’s a beauty!
