clay ( vessels ) 







¬ Each vessel is made by hand of the earth, fired in the earth of Northern New Mexico. Each piece is unique in its entirety. 

TERRAIN:
The earth used is wild micaceous clay hand dug and processed by Johnny Ortiz, from the same land that his ancestors ( of Taos Pueblo ) have dug for thousands of years in the Sangre de Cristo mountains near Taos, NM. The clay is largely made up of silica, mica, rose quartz, feldspare, and sandstone.

PROCESS:
All pieces are pit fired with mountain red cedar, sanded with sandstone, burnished with a riverstone, and cured with elk marrow all from the same terrain.
