Erik specializes in both traditional and contemporary San Ildefonso pottery. He uses various techniques and clays to produce traditional black-on-black pottery as well as innovative two-tone and polychrome pots.
Each pot is hand-coiled using clay he mixes himself, as well as hand-sanded and hand-polished once the clay is dry. Natural paints made from native vegetation are used to decorate the two-tone and polychrome pots.
