ACOMA POTTERY JAR BY PAULA ESTEVAN. This eye dazzler was hand made by Acoma potter Paula Estevan. Paula was born in Acoma Pueblo in 1967. She learned the art of making pottery in the traditional way from her mother, Patricia Estevan, and from Mary Chino and Victoria Garcia.
She's been producing pottery since 1986. Paula's hand coiled pots are exceptional examples of Acoma pottery with perfect shape and fine, thin walls. Her design process involves selecting a single Acoma design element and repeating it in an extremely fine progressive pattern across the entire surface of the pot. A unique addition to any pottery or Native American art collection.
5 tall x 6 1/4? The pottery is new but hand made and painted, so there may be imperfections. Acoma Pueblo is regarded as the oldest continuously inhabited community in the United States.
Traditional pottery of Acoma is strongly recognized for fluted rims, thin walls and geometric design. Acoma pottery is made using a slate-like clay found within the hills surrounding the Pueblo. When fired using traditional methods, this clay allows the potters to form very thin walls, a common and sought after characteristic of Acoma pottery.
