Hubert Candelario
San Felipe

Squash Seed Pot

3" H x 4 3/4" D

We are delighted to see another wonderful work by Hubert Candelario. We've represented his swirl pots, his "swiss cheese" pots, and even the honeycomb designs - but this one is a first! How apropos such a charming little squash pot would appear during this time of year. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Hubert Candelario, “Butterfly”, was born into the San Felipe Pueblo in 1965. He was inspired to continue a long lived tradition of working with clay by the late Maria Martinez, who was well known for her black on black pottery, and Nancy Youngblood.

Hubert is a self taught artist. He began working with clay at the age of 21. He experimented with different types of clay until he found his own unique style. He admired Maria’s work and hoped that someday he could develop his own unique style to the art world. He has established himself as a fine artisan and has reached his goal of adding his own style to the art world.

Hubert specializes in hand coiled contemporary swirl, puzzle pots, and holey pots with sharp rounded ridges. He gathers his clay from the grounds within the San Felipe Pueblo. Hubert hand cleans, mixes, hand coils, shapes, sands, and fires his pottery in a kiln.

He has established a reputation of a fine artsman. Hubert signs his pottery as: Hubert Candelario, San Felipe Pueblo, followed by the date the pottery was made.
