According to Jonathan Batkin, few documented whole ceramics from Nambe Pueblo exist. Polychrome pottery has not been made at Nambe since the early 19th century. All of the early pottery collected there in the late 1800s is Polished Black or a mica-slipped type. (“Pottery of the Pueblos of New Mexico.”)
The paste of Nambe pottery is typically like other Tewa pottery but generally abundant in mica obtained from nearby the pueblo.Nambe Pueblo is located 22 miles northeast of Santa Fe. The feast day is October 4th honoring their patron San Francisco de Assisi.
