Carmelita and Carlos Dunlap
+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Carmelita Dunlap (1925-1999) and Carlos Dunlap (1958-1981), a mother and son team worked together for a very few years before his untimely death. Their specialty was re-creating the pre-1900 Polychrome pottery that San Ildefonso Pueblo was so famous for before the discovery of Black-on-black. Very few potters at San Ildefonso continued making Polychrome wares following the introduction of Black-on-black pottery by Maria and Julian in the 1920s. Blue Corn and Carmelita were exceptions. They both continued making polychrome wares throughout their careers. Popovi Da and Gilbert Atencio, on the other hand, on occasion made some, but not very frequently.
