Native American Slip Cast Ceramics

Our Southwest Decor Collection of pottery is created by Native American artists of the Southwest pueblo tribes in New Mexico. It is formed using the Slip cast technique of pouring liquid clay into molds rather than the traditional hand coiling technique which utilizes hand dug native clay and slips. Every pot is handcrafted with paints or etching by Pueblo Indian potters and each signed by the artist. Because Slip cast pottery is considerably less labor intensive than hand coiled pieces, it is offered at near half the price a collector of authentic Native American art would pay. The fine quality art work and lower prices make these pieces ideal for use as decor in homes wherever the unique beauty of Southwest art might be appreciated.

Corrine 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 for her extraordinary brush work.

Corrine is a natural when it came to hand painting pottery. Her painting has always been exquisite using fineline and starburst graphics. She generally works with slip cast pots as her canvas. Slip cast pottery is made by using a commercially produced liquid clay that is poured into molds. The clay is not hand harvested nor are the pots hand coiled. If her pots were hand coiled they would be priced two to three times higher.
