Martinez pots from Santa Clara Pueblo
I was in Santa Fe, New Mexico several years ago (02?) and desperately wanted to see how potters from the Santa Clara Pueblo make their beautiful black pots in the tradition of Maria Martinez. I got to the pueblo on a winter day when everything except a little craft shop was closed. The shop owner was wonderful and so I bought these pieces made by Martinez family members but I still did not see how they were made, so he gave me a video of her at work. Its very cool to see how these pots are made. These are gems. If you have any, let me know!
