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.

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.
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”.
