Title

Orange pot with tapered mouth

Description

The pot has a wide base and is tapered in at the mouth. It is made from an orange clay and painted with an off-white design. The design has four triangles filled in with a crosshatched pattern. Between each triangle are three small squares aligned vertically with thick "L"-shaped patterns.
Josephine Vigil (1927-2001) was born in Taos Pueblo. After marrying Albert Vigil, they began working together. Josephine would make pottery which Albert would later decorate. The two started working with black-on-black pottery and later focused mainly on cream-on-red designs.

"Josephine C. Vigil, San Ildefonso Pue. '94" is carved in the bottom of pot.
