About The Polished Black Carved Pottery Jar Lamp

Each potter treats the plumed serpent in a manner that is entirely proprietary, distinctive.

The second generation pottery collector/ dealer Charles King recognized Rose Gonzales' hand in the making of this lamp.

This lamp looks forward to a new shade as well as a fresh electric cord.

 

About Rose Gonzales

(1900-1989) Born in San Juan Pueblo, this talented potter married Robert Gonzales (Santa Ildefonso pueblo) in 1920.

One of the earliest potters to embrace carved decoration, Rose Gonzales' carving was shallow yielding a rather calming effect when viewing a vessel's exterior.
