About The Artist:
Alan is an artist from the Zuni pueblo. He learned to make pottery as a student at the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe,
NM.
Alan's work is unique among the pueblos. He has developed a technique of painting on micaceous clay and he taught hiumself to
use the white clay from Northern NM that his grandmother used.
His pots are fired in a pit while covered with animal fat. As the fat burns off, it leaves unique streaks of color.
Alan signs his pots as Alan E. Lasiloo, Zuni, NM.
The mouth of this piece is round while the bottom is shaped like a rounded triangle.
