Small Snowflake Pattern Acoma Pot by Rachel Concho

Small Snowflake Pattern Acoma Pot by Rachel Concho


Rachel Concho is an award-winning (Best in Show Award at the 2000 Santa Fe Indian Market, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Ribbons at the Eight Northern Pueblos Arts and Crafts Show, among many other accolades!) artist from Acoma Pueblo. Acoma is one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States, situated high atop a mesa some 60 miles west of Albuquerque. The potters at Acoma are renowned for their fine, thin-walled pottery, entirely hand built and fired in traditional pits. Rachel’s work is particularly refined, and her detailed linework is unparalleled. The pigments she uses are entirely natural (wild spinach is used for the black lines) and applied by hand using a traditional yucca fiber brush. The decoration is applied prior to firing, so it becomes permanently fired into the pot. Her snowflake pattern is a modern innovation based on ancient patterns, and is one of her coveted signature styles. I am very happy to be able to offer this stunning example of her work to you today! The pot is small and delicate, measuring 3” high with a diameter of 3” at its widest point.
