Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a discussion with Christine McHorse. Over her nearly fifty-year career she has transitioned from making traditional Pueblo pottery to a body of complex sculptural vessels that are technical and aesthetic frontrunners. Made from local micaceous clay, her vessels have a midnight black appearance resulting from a post-firing reduction process. In the interview we talk about her introduction to traditional Pueblo clay methods by her mother-in-law, her time selling at the Santa Fe Native American market, and her transition into the fine art world.
The success and critical acclaim of her recent traveling exhibition DARK LIGHT: The Micaceous Ceramics of Christine Nofchissey McHorse demonstrates the importance of her role in the field of ceramics. She is currently having her first solo gallery exhibition at Peters Projects, Santa Fe. For more information visit www.petersprojects.com.
