A number of years ago, when vacationing family reunion style in Durango, CO, my Sister-in-laws and I saw this piece of pottery. We fell in love with it and knew we had to gift our Mother-in-law. She is the mom to 10, add a handful of daughter-in-laws who claim her as theirs, grandmother to 27 and great grandmother to 14. (Although she really is just GREAT to all!)
Once again I don't know who the artists is. I didn't have enough sense to look for and keep that piece of information back in the day.
