SF Indian Market #1


This beautiful pottery is the work of Sharon Lewis from the Acoma Pueblo. Acoma pueblo also known as Sky City is west of Albuquerque and sits on top of a 367ft high sandstone mesa. I love the design of her work. Click on the photo for a better look.

Beautiful and I love the crisp contrast of the black and white.

Acoma Pottery is one of a kind; it's my favorite design. The Market was SO crowded yesterday that our 9-yr-old companion came close to having a "meltdown." Next year...no kids!!

Marty said...

These are exquisite pieces. When you are driving on Interstate 10 you can see Acoma perched high atop the mesa. I’d love to visit there sometime.

Randy, I've been wondering when someone would mention no female players. I have not seen any yet, at all!

Really beautiful work, I too love pottery, and this is really special.

These are such intricate designs. I could only get close to something like this using a spirograph. Anybody remember those? :)
I love the beauty of the contrast of the black and white.

Yep, they are indeed lovely!

Acoma pottery is marvelous. I have seen it on past Santa Fe visits but I didn't buy any. These days I regret it.
