Paula Estevan

Tail Feathers

4 1/4" H x 5 3/4" D

Paula Estevan is a potter born in Acoma Pueblo in 1967. She learned the art of making pottery in the traditional way from her mother, Patricia Estevan, and from Mary Chino and Victoria Garcia. She's been producing pottery since 1986. She has never showed in either the Santa Fe Indian Market or the Eight Northern Pueblos Arts and Crafts Show.

Paula’s hand coiled pots are exceptional examples of Acoma pottery with perfect shape and fine, thin walls. Her design process involves selecting a single Acoma design element and repeating it in an extremely fine progressive pattern across the entire surface of the pot, creating an often dizzying-to-the-eyes finished product.

Just take a look at the dizzying detail in this gorgeous pot! It's hard to imagine where one could begin and how everything ends up so balanced and uniform. This is a hallmark of a truly talented potter.
