About Pueblo Pottery
Making pueblo pottery is a complex and time consuming occupation. The most critical moments are mixing the clay at the beginning and the last step which is firing outdoors. Each potter digs and mixes their own clay. They use a series of screens to sift it and remove the impurities. Each pot is coiled, not thrown on a wheel. They use no glazes, only a stone to polish the piece. For the last step they build their own "firing" for each pot or group of pots.
