Acoma Hand Coiled Pot
Artist: Sandra Victorino
Size: 6 3/4"T x 7 3/8"W
Sandra Victorino is a full blooded Native American Indian born into the Pueblo of the Acoma in 1958. She was inspired to learn the art of hand coiling pottery from admiring her famous aunt, Dorothy Torivio, who was one of Acoma’s finest potters. Sandra strongly believes that traditional ways must be kept alive to continue the long lived legacy of her people.
Sandra gathers the clay from within the sacred grounds in Acoma. She was taught how to sift clay, hand coil pottery, paint with a yucca plant, and fire pottery. Sandra specializes in hand coiled pottery with spiral designs like the step to step, checker board, snowflake, half snowflake, and fine line designs. Sandra signs her pottery as: Sandra Victorino, Acoma, NM.
Sandra is related to the following artists: Edna Chino (mother), Brian Chino (brother), Greg Victorino (brother-in-law), and the famous Dorothy Torivio (aunt).
This is an excellent piece with snowflake designs twisting down the sides, fine line and geometric patterns. It has a thin wall and a fantastic shape. This is a great piece to add to any collection.
