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.
