JEMEZ POTTERY VASE BY GERALDINE SANDIA

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

This exquisite vase was handmade by Geraldine Sandia from Jemez Pueblo.  Geraldine was born at Jemez Pueblo in 1950, and at the age of ten, she began to experiment with clay.  Her mother, Cecilia Loretto taught  her the traditional techniques of working with clay.  For the past twenty years, Geraldine has been an award-winning artist.  She gathers her clay locally, hand coils her pottery, uses natural pigments, and fires in the traditional manner.  She specializes in handmade, hand painted two toned polychrome, stone polished traditional Jemez pottery.  Each piece of pottery is unique and well crafted.  Signed

8” tall x 5″ long x 4  1/4″

Within the Jemez Pueblo there are many exceptional potters.  The work is generally characterized by the buff and red clays used, and the range of styles and subjects.   Storyteller, figures, sgrafitto designs, wedding vases, and melon pots are a few of their favorites.  Before the arrival of the Spanish, Jemez was known for its traditional black-on-white ware, but production of this type of pottery died out in the early 18th century.  There was a revival of Jemez pottery-making in the early 20th century inspired and influenced by Zia pottery designs, but it was not until the 1960’s and 70’s that a significant number of Jemez potters began producing high-quality work using traditional methods.
