Lisa Holt and Harlan Reano make an amazing team, working to create innovative pottery using traditional techniques.  Lisa makes the vessels and they are painted by Harlan.  The materials are all traditional as the red and cream are both native clays while the black is wild spinach (a plant).  Traditional forms and designs have become modernistic interpretations of cultural imagery.  This is one of Lisa’s early pieces.  It is a bear storyteller with a larger bear and a baby bear sitting on the leg.  The bear is wearing a vest and the back of the vest has classic Cochiti cloud desigsn. The little bear has a small bowl.  It is signed on the bottom, “Lisa Holt”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
