Tom Tenorio bird potThomas Tenorio

This pot is an impressive 10.25 inches tall by 9 inches wide with flower and bird motif beautifully done. The bottom third of the pot is a bit darker than the upper two-thirds which can be seen in the enlargement but as all collectors know this isn't that uncommon for pit fired pottery from any pueblo. Most of Tom's pots presented by galleries go for over $1000 and this one would be right around that price. Your price $775 ~ Item #SD305. Includes Shipping! Click here to see an enlargement.

Thomas Tenorio of Santo Domingo Pueblo does both traditional and contemporary polychrome jars, bowls and miniatures. He is the grandson of Pete Aguilar and the son of Trinidad Aguilar and Anacita Tenorio. (Photo at the 2013 Santa Fe Indian Market)

Thomas has been working with clay since 1972 and is basically self-taught. He creates exceptionally beautiful pottery using traditional clay, paints and firing which he learned from Ambrose Atencio. Thomas has won numerous 1st and 2nd place awards over the years at

Tom has demonstrated the promise to achieve a place among the finest pueblo potters. His work has arguably surpassed that of Robert Tenorio at this point in its popularity and is significantly increasing in value every year. Keeping his work in stock has become a challenge in itself. His work is included in "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies" by Gregory Schaaf and in Berger & Schiffer's "Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery".

Mark Wayne Garcia has been an active Santo Domingo Pueblo potter since the 1990s working with black-on-red jars, dough bowls and canteens and most recently in micaceous pottery with black. Although Mark has exhibited at the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Arts & Crafts Show in the past he has not achieved any significant recognition until lately with his micaceous pottery which is soaring in popularity and can be seen in some of Santa Fe's most high-end galleries including the Andrea Fisher Gallery.

The pottery exhibited here supports the interest of galleries and collectors with its perfect form, finish and superb, crisp black graphics. Mark's work is referenced in "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies" by Gregory Schaaf, Berger & Schiffer's "Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery" and "Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni" by Allen Hayes and John Blom.
