Wedding Vases


The wedding vase has been part of Pueblo life for centuries. The two spouts represent the separate lives of the bride and groom, which are united by the bridge at the top. The groom’s parents provide the wedding vase for use in the ceremony. On the day of the wedding, the vase is filled with holy water and given to the bride. She drinks from one side and the groom drinks from the other. This ceremony is equivalent to the exchanging of wedding bands.

The wedding vases presented here are meant to be used for display only and make wonderful wedding and anniversary gifts. Ceremonial pottery is considered sacred and is only made and given as gifts among tribal members. The pottery must be fired in a certain way to be hardened against water permeation, or otherwise sealed using pine pitch or wax.

Acoma Pueblo Hand Made Pottery Wedding Vase


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 was inspired to continue the family tradition of clay sculpting by observing many of her family members. She was especially motivated by the passion and ambition that her sister, Marilyn Ray-Lewis, showed towards working with clay, and the assistance that she gave to her. 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. Judy is related to the following artists: Kathy Lewis (mother), Carolyn Concho Lewis (sister), and Sharon Lewis (sister). She signs her art work as Judy Lewis, Acoma, N.M.

Zia Pueblo Pottery


by Ralph Aragon


Ralph Aragon is a full blooded Native American Indian. He was born into the San Felipe Pueblo and married into the Zia Pueblo, where he has lived for the past twenty years. As long as he can remember, Ralph has had the desire to create his own unique style of art. With traditional upbringing instilled in Ralph, he has learned to respect the beauty of nature which is evident in his animal motifs and earth tone palettes, which are abundantly used in his art.


Over the years, Ralph has experimented with his own unique style of painting. He combines contemporary painting techniques with traditional Zia pottery designs, in order to obtain the rock art images and patterns that are associated with social and spiritual themes. Ralph is a strong believer in continuing the traditional ways of his people. Ralph studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico., In addition, his own quest for a unique way to express his creativity has led him successfully to hand paint shields, pottery, and gourds. Because of this, he has created “something different” for us to enjoy and images that “help preserve his culture and heritage”. He specializes in hand painting handmade pottery using acrylic paints. He signs his pottery as: R. Aragon, incorporated with a Kiva step style, which is a celebration of Pueblo life and the festivities of harvest time.
