Acoma Pueblo Pottery


Traditional Acoma pottery is made using a slate-like clay found within the hills surrounding the Pueblo. When fired using traditional methods, this clay allows the potters to form very thin walls, a common and sought after characteristic of Acoma pottery. Although hand coiled pottery is preferred for its collectability, there are many fine Acoma artists who prefer to use pour molded or greenware pots as their canvas. While pour molded pots do not retain the same value as a traditionally hand coiled piece, their low price point makes them great for decorating or for gifts. We carry a wide range of Authentic Acoma pottery from artists like Dorothy Torivio, Sandra Victorino, Frederica Antonio, Rachel Aragon, Theresa Garcia-Salvador, Wilfred Garcia, Leland Robert Vallo, Kim Vallo, Paula Estevan, Robert Patricio, Franklin Peters and more.

by Judy Lewis


Judy Lewis is a full blooded Native American Indian from the Pueblo of Acoma and she was born in 1966. She has been making pottery since 1986.

Judy hand coils pottery, vases, and storytellers using the methods of her ancestors. She only uses natural pigments for clay and paints. Judy has developed a style of her own. She hand pinches and hand coils a contemporary shape with traditional designs and colors. As with the entire family the colors have a crisp but soft pastel look to them.

Acoma Pueblo Hand Coiled Pottery


by Terrance M. Chino Sr


Terrance M. Chino, Sr. is a full blooded Native American Indian. He is a member of the Sun Clan and he was born in 1965 into the Acoma Pueblo. He learned the ancient traditional methods of working with clay art from his mother, the late, Evelyn L. Chino. She taught him all the fundamentals of where to gather clay and how to prepare and hand coil pottery. She also taught him the importance of continuing the long lived tradition of his ancestors.


Terrance gathers his clay, natural pigments, and vegetation from within the Acoma Pueblo. He cleans it for impurities and hand mixes it with sand and water to temper the clay. Then, he begins the hand coiling process, he prays and chants while he works on his pottery so that each piece is blessed. When he has completed the hand coiling and his pot has taken form he sets them out to dry. While the pottery is drying he breaks down all his plants so that he may begin hand boiling colors for his masterpieces. He gathers plants such as spinach plant and wild flowers for this process. When his pottery is fully dried he sands each piece to a smooth finish and begins hand painting with the stem of a yucca plant which has been fashioned into a brush. He hand paints his favorite designs of checkerboards, flowers, mimbres, and sunfaces. Finally, Terrance fires his pottery the traditional way, outdoors. He signs his pottery as: Terrance M. Chino, Sr., Acoma, N.M. Terrance is related to: Terrance M. Chino, Jr. (son) Emil Chino, Jeffrey Chino, Sr., (brothers), Ilona Chino, Colleen Marian, Marlene Vallo, Idene Mariano (sisters), Ivan F. Chino (father), and the late, Evelyn L. Chino (mother).
