Traditional Pueblo Pottery
Traditional Pueblo Pottery is made from clay painstakingly gathered and processed by hand on the pueblo. Each pot is hand coiled pottery created without a potter's wheel or machinery. The artist's use paints/colors created from gathered plants and minerals and generally applied with brushes handmade from yucca cactus.
When the pit is fired the traditional way - it is outdoors, in pits using various woods and sometimes manure to achieve desired effects.
The artists use traditional methods, symbols and designs passed down through the generations within families and clans.
Each pot is a one-of-a-kind creation with a unique character born from the merging Human & Earth Spirit.
Contemporary and traditional pueblo pottery continues to appreciate in value, in its standards of quality, and is increasingly collected throughout the world as an art form and a medium of spirituality.
