This is an extraordinary miniature melon bowl by Linda Tafoya Sanchez. Hand coiled, and fired outdoors, it shows remarkable carving AND polishing skills. The sixteen ribs are extremely symmetrical, and it is polished to a very high sheen. This is what I refer to as a “jewel”. Made in the early 1990’s, it is still in perfect condition.
