POTTERY OF THE SOUTHWEST

Artists and Pieces from Southwestern Pottery - Anasazi to Zuni
Looking for an exceptional education on traditional and contemporary Native American Arts? At Pottery Of The Southwest, a gallery located on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico, you will find artists you know and recognize, and some you will not. We specialize in artists and pieces from the book, “Southwestern Pottery – Anasazi to Zuni” , a popular southwestern pottery collector’s guide with gorgeous photography by John Blom; written by Allan Hayes.

Come meet potters and artists at our gallery exhibits and pottery making demonstrations. Watch as the story of this ancient and still existing craft takes shape in potter’s hands.

Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi To Zuni

John Blom’s collection encompasses over 2,000 objects in various forms, both contemporary and historic. Pottery from all the major Native American tribal groups and renowned Pueblo potters in Arizona and New Mexico are represented.

It’s a collection strong enough to attract over 3,000 visitors when just a quarter of it went on exhibit at The Nevada Museum of Art in Reno in 2012.
