Historically there are sixteen pottery producing Pueblos along the Rio Grande valley of Northern New Mexico as well as the Western Pueblos of Acoma, Zuni and Hopi.
Also included in the pueblo pottery tradition are the Mojave, Maricopa, and Yuma cultures in Southern Arizona. Each of these pueblos produce a distinct type of pottery that reflects that natural materials available to them. Each piece is hand coiled, scraped, sanded, painted (with mineral or vegetal pigments) and finally pit fired outside. Our gallery represents the very finest examples of these pueblo pottery types from the historic period of 1850 to 1950 as well as a diverse collection of contemporary traditional pueblo ceramics.
