Terrance Chino Seed Pot

We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Acoma Pueblo artist Terrance Chino learned the ancient methods of working clay from his mother, Evelyn L. Chino. To create his Terrance Chino Seed Pot, Terrance cleaned and tempered locally gathered clay which he hand-coiled and shaped. Throughout this process, he chanted and prayed to ensure every piece was blessed. While the vessel dried, he hand-boiled certain plants to make the colors with which he decorated this one-of-a-kind Seed Pot. Next he sanded the pot until the surface was smooth, then used a yucca-plant paint brush to apply his complex geometric designs. Handcrafted in New Mexico.
Authentic Acoma Pueblo pottery, like this intricately hand-painted Terrance Chino Seed Pot, is made from local clays that produce white vessels when fired in an open, outdoor kiln. The white backgrounds enable Acoma potters to create their characteristically crisp geometric designs. Many Acoma Pueblo jars and seed pots are included in the collections of our National Museum of the American Indian.
