Sant0 Domingo Pottery (Kewa)

Santo Domingo Pottery and the Santo Domingo Pueblo, is one of the best known tribes of the southwest Indians, largely because of their skill in marketing their pottery, jewelry and other crafts. The Pueblo is fifth in population of the nineteen New Mexico Pueblos, and is generally considered the most conservative in terms of customs and culture. Life in the Pueblo has altered little since the arrival of the white man, Santo Domingo people have closely guarded their ceremonies, placing great emphasis on their ancient religious structures and societies, the center of the social structure. While adhering strictly to tribal authority, much of the Pueblo productivity is devoted to the making of jewelry. They travel all over the country displaying and selling the silver and turquoise necklaces, rings and bracelets which have made them famous They also make fine heishe of turquoise and other stones and silver. As would be expected the pottery of Santo Domingo is strictly traditional, reproducing with care, the ancient forms and decorations.

Holt, Lisa & Harlan Reano – Spiraling Dragon Clay Figure

Lisa Holt and Harlan Reano make an amazing team, working to create innovative pottery using traditional techniques.  Lisa makes the pottery and it is painted by Harlan.  This dragon figure combines both a pueblo and Asian influence with the avanyu and dragon combination.  The dragon is hollow and the body has a spiraling appearance.  The undulating form is exceptional clay work as the piece is hollow and it is subtley connected adding both strength to the clay and allowing the figure to have more movement. The designs are a combination of plant patterns which are then emulated with the spines along the back.  The small clay tabs which are added are the natural color of the clay, adding another dimension to the piece.  The materials are all traditional as the red and cream are both native clays while the black is wild spinach (a plant). This figure was also traditionally fired outdoors.

Pacheco, William Andrew – Asymmetrical Dinosaur Jar

Andrew Pacheco is a nephew of noted potter Robert Tenorio.  He is known for his use of traditional techniques and materials but with non-traditional designs.  This is one of his asymmetrical jars with dinosaurs as the designs.  He started out making traditional Kewa pottery but was interested in dinosaurs. They quickly became a theme on his pottery. It is the combination of the dinosaurs and the form which work perfectly together and create a sense of movement to the piece.  The jar is painted with native clays and bee-weed and traditionally fired.
