An unusual Maria Martinez bowl, signed as Maria Poveka, the name by which she was known previously. Martinez (1887-1980) of the San Ildefonso Pueblo, N.M. originated the black on black finish, and remains the most famous ceramicist of the Southwest. This piece would have been created between 1956 and 1965. Excellent condition.
