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.

Acoma Pueblo Hand Coiled Pottery


by Sandra Victorino


Sandra Victorino is a full blooded Native American Indian born into the Pueblo of Acoma in 1958. She was inspired to learn the art of hand coiling pottery from admiring her famous Aunt, Dorothy Torivio, who was one of Acoma’s finest potters. Sandra strongly believes that traditional ways must be kept alive to continue the long lived legacy of her people.


Sandra gathers the clay from within the sacred grounds in Acoma. She was taught how to sift clay, hand coil pottery, paint with a yucca plant, and fire her pottery outdoors in the traditional methods. Sandra specializes in hand coiled pottery with spiral designs like the step to step, checker board, snowflake, half snowflake, and fine line designs. She also likes adding parrots to her pottery from time to time. Sandra signs her pottery as: Sandra Victorino, Acoma, NM.

Acoma Pueblo Hand Coiled Pottery


by Wilfred Garcia Jr.

 

Wilfred Garcia, Jr., is a full blooded Native American Indian. He was born in 1954 into the Acoma Pueblo. He was inspired to learn the art of working with clay from his mother-in-law, the late Stella Shutiva. She taught him all the fundamentals of working with clay and using the ancient traditional methods that have been passed down from generation to generation. Wilfred was very artistically inclined as a young boy and thus sparked his interest in pursuing a career as a pottery artisan.

 

Wilfred has established himself as a fine contemporary pottery artisan. He gathers clumps of natural clays from within the Acoma Pueblo. He breaks down the clumps into a fine powder form which he hand mixes with sand and water to temper the clay. Then, he rolls his moist clay into snake like coils and begins building his pottery into the desired shape. He creates many shapes of pottery vessels such as: seedpots, vases, and Mesa Verde motif vases with ladders. Once his vessels are built he sets them out to dry. Once his formed pottery vessels are dry he sands them down for a smooth finish. Finally, Wilfred fires his pottery in a kiln.

 

He signs his pottery as: WGarcia, Acoma. Wilfred states: “Making pottery for over 12 years has given me joy and love for my art. I take my time with every piece that I construct so that each piece is special”. He is related to: Jackie Histia-Shutiva (sister-in-law) and Sandra Garcia (spouse).
