Jemez Pueblo Pottery

The  art of Jemez Pueblo Pottery making was revived in the 1800s after being lost during the Spanish conquest of the American Southwest. After being developed in the tradition style, the pottery has been enhanced over the generations to include several wonderful clay colors and traditional shapes.  Jemez Pueblo Pottery has also been influcenced by later generations by polishing and insizing the pottery, fine line painting, inliad stonework and storyteller figures. The Pueblo of Jemez has a closed village policy due to the lack of tourism facilities and out of respect for the privacy of those who live there. The village is, therefore, open to the public only on Feast Days. The Pueblo now chooses to no longer allow these days to be publicized due to over capacity and for the reasons stated above. Visitors should go to the Walatowa Visitor Center which is open year round. Do not wander around the village.
