It has been determined that beans cooked in micaceous pottery vessels on top of a stove burner or over an open flame are unbeatable for flavor.  A restaurant in Santa Fe serves beans cooked in that manner and they sell micaceous bean pots too.

It does not appear that this one was never used.  The previous owner purchased this in the mid-1940s and stored it wrapped in paper, never even displaying it.

This micaceous pottery bean pot was purchased by the previous owner from the potter at Picuris Pueblo so its provenance is clearly defined.  It is often difficult to distinguish between micaceous pottery from Taos Pueblo and Picuris Pueblo, so it is reassuring when the potter is known from whom it was purchased.


Condition: this Picuris Pueblo Micaceous Pottery Bean Pot by Ramita Martinez is in original condition

Provenance: from the estate of Tom Dickerson, former potter and lifetime resident of Santa Fe, and avid collector of Native arts.
