Four Winds Gallery welcomes back award-winning Taos Pueblo jeweler Maria Samora. Maria focuses on strong shapes enhanced with subtle textures and patinas, preferring the tonal play of mixed metals to add contrast and dimension.
Since the gallery's inception, we have been especially drawn to the rich ceramic heritage of the Pueblo people. We represent award-winning contemporary potters as well as the ceramics of the 20th century masters, including Nampeyo, Maria Martinez, Margaret Tafoya, and Lucy Lewis. From the mid-19th century onward, pottery became a mainstay in the culture and economy of most of the Pueblos. We search out exceptional early examples of these exquisite and rare ceramics to showcase in the gallery. Contact us for more information about our pottery collection.
Four Winds Gallery blog is a way to share information about our gallery, the history and processes of the items we carry and to offer a deeper understanding of this remarkable work.
