$545.00
Authentic Native American Pot by Rachel Aragon, Acoma Pueblo This is a lovely thin walled polychrome hand painted Acoma olla. Rachel and her sister Florence were known for this elegant style and are considered to be some of the very best. CONDITION: Other than a couple of spalls, the pot is in good condition. No cracks or paint chips. SHIPPING: All pots are professionally double boxed, insured and send USPS. Rachel Aragon was born into the Eagle Clan of Acoma Pueblo in 1938. Her mother, Lupe Aragon, encouraged and inspired Rachel to learn the traditional art of working with clay at the age of 10. Rachel graduated from High School in 1958 and moved on to pursue a career in working with clay on a more professional level. She specializes in traditional hand coiled fertility pottery. She gathers her clay from sacred grounds within Acoma Pueblo. Then she soaks the clay, grinds it, cleans it, hand mixes it, hand coils the shapes, sands the forms and hand paints the designs using natural pigments to produce the natural earth tones she paints with. Then she fires her pottery the traditional way: outdoors with wood chips. Over the years Rachel has won 1st and 2nd Place at the New Mexico State Fair and 2nd Place at the Santa Fe Indian Market. Rachel is well known for her lightweight pottery and her beautiful hand painted designs: she especially likes to use flowers, parrots, Tularosa spirals and deer with heart lines. She signs her pottery as: Rachel Aragon, Acoma, N.M.
