This Santa Clara melon bowl was hand-made by Mary Cain. While Mary is no longer making pottery- this squash vase is a beautiful example of her pottery- with a deeply grooved surface and a high polish. It measures: 6-1/2 in. diameter and 5-1/2 in. tall.
Mary Cain is a daughter of noted potter Christina Naranjo- and also a matriarch in her own right of a family of renown potters- including daughters Tina Diaz- Linda Cain- Billy Cain and granddaughters Tammy Garcia and Autumn Borts-Medlock
