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 Wendell Kowemy


Wendell specializes in all natural and traditional hand coiled pottery vessels. He gathers his raw clumps of clay from within the sacred grounds of the Laguna Pueblo. He grinds his clumps of clay into sand like grains and hand mixes sand and water to temper the clay. He begins the hand coiling process which involves rolling out the moist clay into snake like coils and hand building his vessels. Once the vessel has taken form he sets his pottery to dry. Wendell hand boils all of his colors from natural pigments and vegetation which is also harvested from within the Laguna Pueblo. Once the vessels are dry and his colors are boiled Wendell begins hand painting a wide variety of designs which include tularosa swirls, checkerboards, finelines. The designs he paints are usually designs which were found on old potter sherds left from hundreds of years ago. Finally, he fires his pottery the traditional way, outdoors. He signs his pottery as: Wendell Kowemy, New Laguna.

by Carolyn Concho


Carolyn is a fine Acoma potter noted for her colorful Mimbres designs done on variously shaped seedpots.

Carolyn is a member of this latter family which includes the following sibling potters: Marilyn Henderson, Ray Rebecca Lucario, Diane Lewis, Bernard and Sharon Lewis, Carolyn Concho, Judy Lewis. This family comprises one of the best extended potting families in any pueblo.
