Rachel Aragon Classic Acoma Parrot/Band Pottery
This marvelous olla is hand made and hand painted by Rachel Aragon from the Acoma pueblo. It shows the famous Acoma parrot, along with geometric designs that include floral elements. Rachel is well known to collectors of Acoma pottery and her creations are highly sought after. Like her sisters, Rachel is making less and less pottery these days and I am fortunate to be able to bring this impressive piece to collectors.
Rachel is of the Eagle Clan and was taught to make pottery by her mother, Lupe Aragon. Rachel specializes in hand coiled, hand painted, pit fired pottery featuring complex designs and often images of parrots, flowers, deer with heart lines and spirals. She has been a potter since 1948 and her work is widely collected and increasingly hard to find. She has won major awards at the New Mexico State Fair and the Santa Fe Indian Market and is considered one of today's outstanding potters.
This large pot measures 9 1/2 inches tall by 10 inches wide.
