PRIMARY WORK EXPERIENCE

Pueblo Potter

 

Garnet Pavatea was a Hopi-Tewa potter who lived and worked in the Tewa village on First Mesa, Arizona. She made the traditional forms she had learned from other potters in her village. There are two colors of clay available to Hopi potters, tan and red. She chose to work with the harder to use red clay which is both more difficult to polish and fire. Her pieces were decorated with traditional Hopi-Tewa symbols using black and red slip. She was also known to leave her pieces undecorated with triangular indentations around the rim.
