Tis the season, to give a gift handmade with love! Pottery has been a preserved cultural art form on the Santa Domingo Pueblo for centuries. Known to the indigenous as “Kewa” this traditional Pueblo is a short drive through the mountains in Santa Fe. Each piece is created over a month period, the clay is first dug by a member of the Bailon family. The black paint is handcrafted from wild spinach. Next, the ornaments are carefully shaped and then painted before firing in an outdoor pit. Adding extra festive cheer, Ryland picked corn from the fields to add to the faux wreath which can be passed down for generations to come.Made by a dear friend of the Turkoi family, by pueblo artist Ryland Bailon. Allow artistic variation, it is a traditionally made pottery piece where creative freedom is requested.
