Discover the utilitarian side of micaceous pottery at this special workshop with artist Martha Romero, a member of the Pueblo of Nambe.

The shimmering micaceous clay that’s native to the northern Pueblos is unique among Pueblo pottery in that the mineral renders pieces safe for cooking and serving food. Discover the utilitarian side of micaceous pottery at this special workshop with artist Martha Romero, a member of the Pueblo of Nambe. Romero is an award-winning potter who’s shown her work at SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market, and the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum Gallery.
