Rose Gonzales

Native American, (1900–1989)

Originally from the San Juan Pueblo, Gonzales married into the San Ildefonso Pueblo, where she first learned to make polished blackware vessels in the 1920s from her mother-in-law, Ramona Sanchez Gonzales. In the 1930s she developed the deep carving method seen on the upper body of Bowl, which she claimed was inspired by a shard of pottery found by her husband while hunting. Gonzales’s carving method became widely integrated into other San Ildefonso Pueblo potters’ artistic practice. Gonzales continued to innovate throughout her lifetime. She frequently collaborated with her son Tse-Pé on the development of duotones.
