Marie Zieu Chino Southwest Indian Pottery Contemporary Acoma Pueblo - Adobe Gallery, Santa Fe

Marie Zieu Chino Southwest Indian Pottery Contemporary Acoma Pueblo - Adobe Gallery, Santa Fe | Southwest United States | Scoop.it

Some of the most beautiful Indian pottery was created by Marie Zieu Chino of the Acoma Pueblo. Chino began making pottery as early as the 1920’s. At the age of 15 she won her first Indian Market Award. At the first Southwest Indian Fair in 1922 Chino had pieces among the prizewinners.

Chino was known as a patient and generous teacher. In teaching students the process of making pottery, she would first allow them to fill in the lines on sides of the pots.  When a student had achieved a certain level, she would allow them to paint the whole pot.  Many of her students have become prize winning potters.

Chino is considered one of the significant ceramicists at Acoma and was the matriarch of a very talented family of potters. Her find line black on white pottery is what she is known for. She is also recognized as one of the potters, along with Lucy Lewis and Sarah Garcia, who helped lead the revival of the ancientpottery form of the Ancestral Pueblo potters. She was also known for her influence in the revival of ancient Mimbres designs on contemporary Acoma pottery.

September 2, 2014 is the Acoma Pueblo Feast; a great opportunity to see Acoma pottery and learn the meaning behind it from the artist first hand.
