Santo Domingo Pottery Bowl by Vicky Calabaza

Santo Domingo Rainbow Pattern Bowl by Vicky Calabaza
In the art world,  the Santo Domingo Pueblo is generally recognized for stone and shell jewelry, but a small group of contemporary potters are revered for their work hallmarked by a painted line around the rim with a small, but distinct break. They remain faithful to the centuries old methods of crafting then painting their utilitarian pieces with ancient, time honored designs.
