Those of us that have accumulated age along with our bunch of stuff remember Desert Sands Pottery as a kind of tacky pottery sold at every souvenir stand, trading post, and train station from Albuquerque to Los Angeles (and probably beyond) throughout the American Southwest. Time has served it well. Now it is recognized as well-conceived, and arguably innovative, hand made art and utilitarian pottery.
The four vases in the picture vary in height from 3 1/2" to 5 3/4". These are standard shapes that appear in the Desert Sands sales brochure as "#7 Small bud vase" and the taller "#16 Bud vase".
