Pueblo Pottery Demonstration
with Clarence Cruz
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
Please join us for our monthly Pueblo Pottery Series, this month featuring Clarence Cruz (Ohkay Owingeh). An assistant professor in the Art Department at UNM, he instructs both undergraduate and graduate students in pottery. He holds a BA and MFA from UNM in Studio Arts.
Honored in 2012 with the "Lifetime Achievement Allan Houser Legacy Award" for Pueblo potters by the SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, Cruz’s work is traditional, but he employs six different styles and raw materials that he gathers from several sites.
Through his work and continued education, Cruz has had the opportunity to share his knowledge and expertise with both Ohkay Owingeh and neighboring Pueblos, and looks forward to his demonstration at MIAC on January 8.
