In response to many requests from across the nation, Adobe Gallery has produced this, its first Cochiti Pueblo Figurine Catalog.
Our sponsorship of a Storyteller Figurine Show annually for the past four years has solidified our reputation: Adobe Gallery offers two hundred figurines by potters from eleven pueblos; we feature the works of every known potter who creates these special figurines.
The Storyteller evolved from a centuries-old tradition of figurine pottery at Cochiti Pueblo. We are devoting our first catalog to Cochiti contemporary works in honor of the talented men and women who painstakingly create modern variations from ancient themes. All Figurines are authentic: hand-made from native clay, painted with vegetal/mineral paints, and fired outdoors. Each piece embodies Cochiti artistry and beauty.
Whether you are in search of an exquisite Figurine to add to your personal collection or whether you want to admire these whimsical creations, we are certain you will find this catalog attractive and informative.
