This revival spread among other Acoma potters who also allowed the old styles to lead them to innovative designs and new variations of style and form. Marie became particularly well known for her amazingly uniform fine-line black-on-white hand-coiled pottery. Her pots were distinctive in their complex geometric designs as well as the combination of life forms and abstract symbols. Some of her favorite designs included animals, swirls, kiva steps, parrots, rainbows, berries, leaves, rain, clouds, lightning and fine-line snowflakes.
As the head of the Chino family of potters, Marie mentored her family in the finer aspects of the ancient art of pottery making. She also worked with many students from outside her family. Chino's pottery can be found in the book. 14 Families in Pueblo Pottery. Along with numerous other publications.
In 1922, Marie won her first award at the Santa Fe Indian Market. In 1998 the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts recognized Marie with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
