I bought this piece about 15 years ago from a woman who was as excited to share her art as I was to own it. I wish I still had her card with her name because she deseves the credit. This is a class piece of pottery, a brushed matte grey base with an exquisite black glazed pattern. It's almost 6" high and 29" around. Her signature symbol and pride in her heritage are very apparent on the bottom. A beautiful piece.
