Acoma Carved Pottery Large Bowl by M & R Romero

Michael & Robin “Shy-Yai-Zta” Romero are full blooded Native Americans born into the Acoma Pueblo. Michael was born in 1964 and Robin was born in 1968. They were inspired to continue the family tradition of working with pottery from several members of their family and other artisans. Michael & Robin were also motivated by the lucrative aspect of the business to learn the art of pottery making. They both learned the process of using natural pigments to hand coil pottery in their early teenage years.

Michael & Robin specialize in producing hand etched pottery. With a simple sharp carving tool and a little imagination Michael & Robin construct some of the finest etchings. They paint the ceramic pottery with natural paints and etch very intricate patterns and designs of animals like hummingbirds, deer, elk, and wolves. They also etch carvings of traditional kachina dancers. They are related to the following artists: Deborah Aragon (sister), Gertrude Romero (mother-in-law), and Wilbert Aragon (brother). These fine artists sign their pottery as: M&R Romero, Acoma, N.M.
