Polished Bear Fetish & a Black Micaceous Bear Fetish by Robert Gonzales

Robert Gonzales, Barbara’s husband (son of Lorenzo & Dolores Gonzales, grandson of Luis & Juanita Gonzales), has played an integral part for years assisting her in the firing process, as well as the gathering of raw materials for the creation of pieces, and also helping with some of the rough stages of finishing. During the early 1990’s, with Barbara’s guidance, Robert began creating pieces of his own, inclusive of small bowls and plates, which ultimately lead to his creation of fine bear and turtle figurines & fetishes.
