Pueblo Pottery

In Southwestern New Mexico, nestled atop a high sandstone mesa overlooking vast arroyos and valleys, is the oldest inhabited community in North America — the Acoma Pueblo, also known as “sky city”.  This is where the Acoma people have lived for centuries, producing an inspiring wealth of culture and art. The pottery of Acoma is strongly recognized for fluted rims, thin walls and geometric design. Potters of the pueblo implement similar techniques found in the local region, from collecting of the clay material from limited sources, forming the vessel for specific use, decorating with patterns and design by hand, to firing the pot at high temperature.
