Title: The Pot, Crafts
No Image Available I created an Acoma pot. I used a technique in which I used a puki pot I started with a slab of clay then I formed into the bottom of the puki pot. Next I used flat slabs about two inches wide and the diameter of the pot long. I pinched them together. The last slab was straight up to create the neck of the pot. For the finish of the pot I used an under glaze in three different colors white, cinnamon, and black. I used a traditional Acoma pottery pattern because I like the nature look of the Acoma pot. My inspiration for this pot was that I have seen these pots before and I really liked them and I thought to myself that would be cool to do myself so I did and it is more special to me because I made it myself and not somebody else.
