Wedding Vases
Authentic Native American, traditional and contemporary, wedding vases by the potters of Santa Clara, Jemez, Hopi, Zia, Laguna, Zuni, Taos and Acoma pueblos ~ also the potters of Mata Ortiz and the Navajo Dine Nation. All our one-of-a-kind vases are created from hand-dug clay. The clay is then hand coiled into shape and painted with natural pigments derived from vegetation and minerals by the potter whose signature is on the vase's bottom. Each pot is created in the potter's home with the help of family members.

April Naranjo created this beautiful Santa Clara Pueblo blackware wedding vase with traditional avanyu design. She is the daughter of Glenda Naranjo and a rising star at Santa Clara known for excellent carving and some great high polishing. This is one of her best pieces and the price reflects it to a degree. One can always find pieces with the same dimensions at a lower price but size and base descriptions do not indicate quality. It is also good to keep in mind that like any creation or product created by hand there are high quality pieces and there are seconds. We don't buy or sell seconds.

Vickie Martinez Tafoya was taught to pot by her grandmother, Flora Naranjo and her mother, Barbara Martinez. In the late 1980s she dated Stella Chavarria's son and both Stella and Teresita Naranjo encouraged her to improve and take her pottery more seriously. It is clearly evident that she followed their advice. The influence of both Stella and Teresita is apparent in her style. Today Vickie makes elegant pottery at affordable prices. She is certainly one of the better values at Santa Clara Pueblo.
