Pam was acclaimed as an official “Local Treasure” for her teaching and community outreach work, as well as her pottery.
She often uses the clay from her Taos Pueblo surroundings, which is naturally infused with sparkling bits of mica.
This beautiful pot is an example of the gorgeous simplicity and technical excellence of her work.
Absolute, unadorned simplicity is most difficult to achieve; there is no room for the slightest error.
This zen-like olla is perfect in proportions, form and finish – the micaceous clay glints in the light.
Traditionally made, from the clay-gathering to the hand scraping, etc., this piece has an aura of timeless serenity.
