Catalogue Description:
Bowl with Mimbres Motif and triangular human forms. Marie works within the Acoma tradition when making older styles of pottery. But when the form is contemporary, as seen here with its rippled edge and open bowl form, she creates innovative designs that are still rooted in Acoma such as the Mimbres stule figures. Marie S. Juanico is from the Acoma Yellow Corn Clan and has been an active potter since 1963. She was taught by her mother, Delores Aragon, and in turn, Marie taught the art of traditional pottery to her daughter, Delores Aragon.Marie has won many awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the New Mexico state Fair and the Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial which is held in Gallup, New Mexico. Her favorite designs are Mimbres animals, parrots, rainbows and snowflakes.
