Traditional Acoma Pottery
by Lisa Little, Acoma Pueblo
The Acoma Pueblo of New Mexico is the oldest continually inhabited settlement in the United States. Hundreds of years of tradition has been forged in this little village in the sky. These mini Acoma pottery pieces are all hand made by Acoma artist Lisa Little using traditional clay and clay paints. Each piece is unique and no two pieces are the same. These are authentic Native American made items from the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico.
El Nicho has a great collection of Native American folk art from New Mexican artists and pueblos. We buy directly from the Native American artists ensuring that all pieces are authentic and made available at excellent prices. That means more profits go directly the artist, positively impacting their economic well-being.
