    My second $1 garage sale find for today. It is 3.5" w x 2 1/8" tall. It was sitting right next to the Gibson Glass perfume bottle that I also paid a dollar for. I was familiar with Gibson Glass and know it is good stuff, but had no idea if this pot was worth a dollar. Apparently it is. I have a small pile of little tourist Indian pots that I have picked up over the years and most of those ARE junk. When in doubt, spend a dollar!

    "Vickie Martinez
    Vickie Martinez “Koe-Sawe”, Buffalo Steps, is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born into the Pueblo of Santa Clara-Tewa in 1967. Vickie was inspired to continue the long lived tradition of her ancestors of working with clay from her Mother, Barbara Martinez. She has been making pottery since 1983, when she was 15 years old.

    Vickie specializes in the traditional handmade black and red Santa Clara pottery. She gathers her own natural pigments (clay) from the hills within the Santa Clara Pueblo. Vickie hand coils, shapes, carves, fires and polishes her pottery using all traditional methods. Vickie was quoted as saying: “I find etching a very challenging and rewarding experience, which I am enjoying thoroughly.” Vickie signs her pottery as: Vickie Martinez, Santa Clara Pueblo.

    Vickie is related to the following artists: Barbara Martinez (mother), Glenda Naranjo, Frances Salazar (aunts), Sammy Naranjo, Chris Martinez and Manuel Martinez (brothers)."

      Seeing Danjimcol's Indian pottery post jogged my memory when someone commented on the Martinez family of potters so I went back and looked at my old posts and saw that I had posted a piece by a member of this family and had neglected to thank CWers who had loved it. I think my notifications were not working at this time, or maybe the sun got in my eyes. At any rate a very belated thank you:

      Apologies and thanks for loving my Vickie Martinez bowl aura, Anik, ho2cultcha and fortapache!
