Pam Lujan-Hauer at IPCC

One of the artists that we became re-acquainted with at Indian Market was Pam Lujan-Hauer, a Taos Pueblo potter. It had been a few years since our last encounter. Her pottery just keeps getting better, more inventive, more collectable.

Coincidentally, we found Pam’s work currently on display in the gallery at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque. It is a major exhibit, with about 20 of her pieces on display.

One of Pam’s specialties is the inlay of silver into pottery, a technique that she was one of the first to practice.
We take special pride in Pam because we were among the first to discover and acquire her pottery, recognizing even then that she had a special talent and sensitivity.
