CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION Micaceous dish with deeply carved, abstracted rainbird design.The micaceous clay comes from the Manzano Moutains in New Mexico- a small range southeast of Albuerquerque. The clay is blened with other clay as it is quite rough with little plasticity. Coiled, shaped, fired and polished int he traditional manner it is a very forgiving clay and can be reworked and shaped. It is a great heat conductor in firing. Since the clay has such flexed particles that add their woin shimmer it is most often carved instead of painted.
