Hangin’ with the Masters – Ep. 7: Clarence Cruz

Wright’s Indian Art is proud to present Hangin’ with the Masters – Episode 7: Clarence Cruz!!

Clarence will be in our studio on Saturday, June 9th from 12pm until 5pm.

Clarence Cruz learned pottery from observing and working with his sister, his aunts and his neighbors while growing up in Ohkay Owingeh (formerly San Juan) Pueblo in New Mexico. He’s especially experienced in the making of micaceous pottery, or pottery made using clay with a high concentration of mica. This pottery is not only beautiful, but practical, as it is usually made to be utilitarian.

Clarence received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Allan Houser Legacy Award in 2012, honoring his contribution in traditional Pueblo pottery. He teaches at his alma mater, the University of New Mexico, as an assistant professor of art, focusing on Pueblo pottery.

Clarence was recently written up in the Albuquerque Journal, which you can find here.

The show will include a live demo and a talk regarding Clarence’s work and process.

We look forward to seeing you at this fantastic event!!
