Jemez Pueblo Pottery

Jemez Pueblo is a federally recognized tribe in north-central New Mexico, just northwest of Albuquerque. The tribe is one of the 19 remaining pueblos of New Mexico covering 89,000 miles and home to 3400 tribal members. Traditional pottery from this pueblo had nearly died out until its revival in the later 1960's. Pottery of this region is red-slipped or buff ware with red, black or buff designs. This pot was made by Martina Chinana, one of many artists who is struggling to have Jemez gain respect as a major pottery producing pueblo. Source. I bought my pot while visiting the environs of Las Vegas a few years ago, never realizing the history behind this style of pottery.

For this Texture Tuesday, we were to  use one of Kim Klassen's textures named "Serendipity".  I also used another of Kim's textures named Vintage Teal and also, Sonnet.
