Its a sweet piece and a great addition to any collection! Denise Chavarria of Santa Clara pueblo began working with clay at age 16, inspired by her mother, Stella Chavarria, and her late grandmother, Teresita Naranjo. These matriarchs taught her all the fundamentals of working with clay, and encouraged her to continue the family tradition, perpetuating the legacy of pottery-making. Denise has been making pottery wares for over 25 years.
She gathers then cleans the clay, mixes it with white ash, and allows it to set for about a day. Denise uses the traditional hand-coiling method to form the body, then designs and carves the pieces.After theyve dried completely, she sands, polishes, and fires the finished pieces outdoors, using either horse dung to achieve the striking black-on-black effect, or an open fire for red pots. Denise and her pottery have also been featured in such books as. Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery, Southwestern Indian Pottery Anasazi. Santa Clara Portraits: A Proud Tradition.
