Lourdes Lucero

One of the very fine potters from northern Mexico, members of the Paquime tribe. They are descended from Pueblo Indians who fled the reinstatement of Spanish rule, in 1680, after the Pueblo Revolt.Pottery-making was rediscovered in the 1970’s, and is now a major source of pride, creativity and income for these villages.
Lourdes’ style is characterized by elegantly ample forms and exquisitely painted patterns.
