Thomas Tenorio 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)

The pot at  top, right, is just a wonderful piece with fantastic graphics and great shape. It measures 5 inches by 5.5 inches. Item #SD300 ~ Your price $395. Includes Shipping! SOLD

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 Thomas Tenorio pottery fish potthe New Mexico state Fair, the Santa Fe Indian Market and the Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial plus at shows in Texas, Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York.

The pot at left has Tom's wildly popular swimming fish motif. Tom tells me that his fish pots always sell out first at any venue such as the Santa Fe Indian Market. This is a moderate size pot with a good price. A Southwest gallery price for this pot would be around $950. It measures 6.5 inches tall by 8.75 inches wide. Our price $725 ~ Item #SD304 Includes Shipping! Click here to see an enlargement. SOLD

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 & Tom Tenorio bird potSchiffer's "Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery".

The pot at right 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.
