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.
