Susan Folwell is one of the exciting innovators in Pueblo pottery.  This new jar is for her current show, “Roads Well Traveled: Route 66“.  This piece is entitled “Tucumcari is for Lovers“.  The tile is made from micaceous clay.   Susan created an edge to the tile with texture and color.  The front has “Tucumari” and “Tonite”.  Tucumari is on of the famous stops on Route 66.  The famous “Blue Swallow” hotel in pink is an iconic landmark on the highway.  The colors and detail on this tile are fantastic!  How could it be missed as part of her Route 66 series!! The tile is signed, Susan Folwell.

Susan says of this show:

“I’ve been taking trips and traveling along Route 66 in Arizona and New Mexico since I was a kid.  There is so much to see, interpret, and wonder about that past!  Much of the area lends itself to my natural interest in the obscure and unusual.  Neon signs from half a century ago still serve a purpose and are still in working order.  Curio shops are all along the route with enough to feed my imagination for weeks.  It history and reflection, a strange reflection of where we were as a country and a nostalgia that seems to continue to push through the cracks of time.  Honstely, it’s a walk down memory lane and there isn’t much about it, no matter how weird or unexpected, that just doesn’t make me want to smile.  I like that.”
