Pauline continues to use the traditional methods of pottery making, but has come a long way from the poster-paint days of the Jemez pottery. She gathers her clay from within the hills of the Jemez Pueblo. She also cleans, mixes, hand coils, shapes, paints, polishes, and fires her pottery the traditional way, outdoors. She has a unique method of adding a hand stone polish to a red or buff colored slip. The shapes are swirl bowls, wedding vases and various shaped pots. Pauline has also started to etch on her pottery, which add a very elegant contrast to the her polished work. She signs her pottery as: Pauline Romero, Jemez.
