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.

Edna Chino of Acoma Pueblo is a full blooded Native American who was born into the Acoma Pueblo in 1935. She is a member of the Eagle clan. Francis Torivio taught her all the fundamentals of work with clay and using the ancient traditional hand coiling methods at the age of 15.

Edna specializes in hand coiled traditional fineline design pottery but does create work on slip cast pottery also out of her shear love of painting which she passed on to her incredibly talented daughter, Corrine Chino. She uses traditional brushes which are fashioned from the fibers of the yucca plant.
