It is also not unusual for pots to be kiln fired, rather than the traditional method, but the expression of the individual artist lies in the manner in which they chose to represent their art form. The difference can often be seen and felt since custom pieces tend to be thinner, lighter, and have a coarse interior. Regardless of the approach, the hand painted design selection varies. Traditional designs include rainbow bands, parrots, and deer; or a black and brown motif with geometric pattern and impressively accurate fine lines. Orange and black are traditional colors, however, current artists have incorporated new, bright and vibrant colors as generations have passed. Hatching patterns symbolize rain, while lightning, thunder clouds and mountains are also represented. The influences of the cycle of life, water and sky are frequently used. New designs have become more detailed to catch the eye.
The pottery of Acoma, aside from its prized artistic value, was originally functional. Pottery provided storage, cooking, and eating.

Today the pottery of Acoma is not only revered and collector for its unique artistic characteristics but also because of its immensely rich historical value.
