Santa Clara Polychrome Pottery, Ron Suazo, CPOTEDM17-06
Ron Suazo is from the Santa Clara pueblo. His pottery style comes from watching his mother who taught him how to coil, polish and fire his pottery. Ron created his designs from studying ancient pueblo styles and early designs from generations prior. Ron decided to create his own style but incorporate ancient designs. Ron often adds stones such as turquoise, coral and malachite to his work. From the day Ron’s interest in pottery began, he has hoped that his work would be unique and stand apart from all others. It seems Ron has accomplished his goal.
