Christine McHorse has taken the traditional micaceous clay and transcended its utilitarian dimension and to create stunning sculptural vessels. Each piece is hand coiled from the micaceous clay near Taos, NM. Her work has a wonderful native aesthetic and vision yet a modern use of the clay to defy expectations. Christine is one of the only potters to win Best of Class at Santa Fe Indian Market for her clay work in both the pottery and sculpture categories. While Christine is Navajo, she learned to make pottery from her mother-in-law, Lena Archuleta (Taos). Her son Joel McHorse also learned to make pottery from Christine. She has received numerous awards at events such as Santa Fe Indian Market. Her work can also be found in museums such as the Heard Museum, the Denver Art Museum, the National Museum of the American Indian and others. She has also been featured in numerous book, including “Free Spirit”. It is not often that we get in contemporary pieces of her pottery and they certainly a delight to the eye!
