Tina Diaz with Mary Cain

Tina Diaz is a daughter of noted potter Mary Cain, a granddaughter of Christina Naranjo and a sister of Billy Cain, Linda Cain and Joy Cain. Tina has skillfully created her own unique style of carving Santa Clara Pueblo pottery. She is one of only a handful of Santa Clara potters who has mastered the technique of polishing her pottery tan. The tan is the natural color of the clay and the most difficult to polish to achieve a high shine. We are pleased to be one of the few galleries in the country to represent the work of Tina. We have been working with her for over 18 years and we are excited everytime she brings us in several new works! Her high quality in carving, polish, coloration, and innovative style continues to be a visually and technically exciting.

Diaz, Tina – Red and Tan Jar with Avanyu

Tina Diaz has skillfully created her own unique style of carving pottery.  She is one of only a handful of Santa Clara potters who has mastered the technique of polishing her pottery tan.  The tan is the natural color of the clay and the most difficult to polish to achieve a high shine.  This red and tan jar with a as a classic avanyu (water serpent) encircling the piece.  It is intricately carved with elaborate designs for the body of the piece.  Note the various sections which create swirls and various angles for the design.   It is always technically difficult to carve such sharp angles and delicate edges into the clay.  The background has the traditional cream colored slip, which few potters use today because it is difficult to apply.
