Pueblo Pottery

The Pueblo people and their antecedents in the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico have made pottery for almost two thousand years. Most Southwestern native peoples developed a pottery tradition, but the Pueblo people’s excelled in form, size, and ornamentation. While the Tewa people of  Santa Clara Pueblo and San Ildefonso Pueblo favored working in blackware, the Keres speaking people of Acoma Pueblo worked with a wide variety of colors and design motifs.

Translating a Curved Pattern onto a Flat Surface

In this Pueblo Ceramic wall art set, as in our Hopi Ceramic set, we have translated a pattern from a curved surface onto a flat surface. The two modules are identical, except for the color palette, and juxtaposing the two with one another is a way of emphasizing the color choice. An an additional, smaller set of two unmounted prints in violet, buff orange, and black on white is unmounted, but can be mounted on request.
