Chino is a full blooded Native American Indian from the
pueblo of Acoma. She was born in the late 1950s. Corrine did
not spark an interest in pottery making until she was 26 years
old. Her mother, Edna Chino,
encouraged and taught Corrine all the fundamentals of hand coiling
pottery using traditional ancient methods. Edna also reinforced
the importance of continuing the long lived family tradition
of working with clay. Corrine no longer works with handcoiled
clay pottery but uses slip cast pottery as her chosen canvass
her extraordinary brush work.
