Pueblo Pottery Demonstration
with Elizabeth and Marcellus Medina (Zia Pueblo)

Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

Elizabeth “Sepia” was born into the Jemez Pueblo, and married into the Zia Pueblo. She was inspired to make pottery by her Mother-in-Law, Sofia Medina. Elizabeth specializes in the traditional Zia pottery with symbols and birds. She digs her own clay, cleans, mixes coils, shapes, fires, and paints her pottery the traditional way, with natural colors.

Marcellus’ designs come from his culture, religious belief, and spirituality. These three elements are the central core of harmony - the balance of inner peace. Each of his pieces tells a positive story and depicts the reality of our being in this world. Feelings and visions are shared through art pieces, which reflect the colors of the rainbow. He embraces the beautiful scenery of New Mexico with a style and grace that transpires the feelings and visual effects that are a breathtaking blessing from the sky, land, and oceans.
