RENEE MONTOYA (?– )

SANTA ANA POLYCHROME BOWL 1994


Santa Ana pottery is scarce. Much of it made in the last 60 years happened because of a revival begun by Eudora Montoya in 1946 and carried on by her relatives, Renee among them. We don't know much about her. Schaaf only tells us "active 1990s," and Harlow, Lanmon and Anderson's The Pottery of Santa Ana Pueblo doesn't add any more information. The painted design and the texture of the tan slip are typical of Santa Ana pottery, but the porthole in the underbody is truly unusual, and we can't explain why it's there. This is in two books, on page 157 of the Second Edition of our Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni and on page 214 of Schaaf's Southern Pueblo Pottery.
