Contemporary Clay In Santa Fe

 

Santa Fe Indian Market

SWAIA – Santa Fe Indian Market

Every August since 1922, the largest Native American Indian arts market, in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico, features over 1000 artists

 

Rich art tradition of Santa Fe

The New Mexico city of Santa Fe is a high desert (2100 metres) cultural mecca that is a fascinating blend of Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures. Combined with historic adobe architecture surrounded by wide expanses filled with a radiant natural light and sacred elements, recognized by the native Indians, it has been a magnet for artists, scientists, mystics, rebels, cowboys and tourists for decades. Since the 20’s the “city incongruous” was promoted as a place where you should feel free to be different. The diverse cultural influences are evident in most of the works by the local artists, and works are also displayed below by outside artists that regularly  have exhibitions in the Santa Fe markets and galleries. “At Santa Fe Indian Market, we are not just promoting and selling art, we are unfolding the history and legacy of Native traditions and cultures, while recognizing contemporary growth and evolution,” said Dallin Maybee, SWAIA’s Chief Operating Officer. “Santa Fe Indian Market allows you to immerse yourself in a rich, sacred cultural experience. It is a place to embrace diversity, creativity, living traditions and a warm sense of family.” The Santa Fe Indian Market is the largest juried Native art show in the world and the largest cultural event in the Southwest.

Santa Clara Pueblo artist Susan Folwell is a Native American potter combining traditional materials and methods with modern themes, whose works speaks to the contemporary confluence of Indian identity.
” It is the use of native clays and interpreting native designs which creates the foundation for her art. Inspired by personal and world events, Susan’s pottery blends catharsis of the spirit with a love of the clay.”

The designs are a beautiful and cautious blend of innovation and tradition, ideal and metaphor, spiritual and social. When each piece is finished, Susan knows as an artist that she has presented a moment of herself into the clay and her personal expression continues to find voice in her art.

 

 

 

 

Pueblo Girl - Susan Folwell

‘Pueblo Girl’  – Sue Folwell

Charles King (King Galleries) : When you start working on a piece of pottery.  Do you have a vision of what you want it to be in terms of shapes or design?

Sue Folwell :  I used to just make pottery and let it come out in whatever form it wants to.  It’s going to do that anyway, no matter what you want it to do.  It definitely has a mind, a soul of its own.

‘Kiss Vase’ (front)—Irina Zaytceva

Irina begins creating a sculpture without knowing how the story ends. She rarely does a sketch for a piece beforehand. Her initial goal is to create an intriguing shape. When the object is completed, Irina determines what the shape suggests in terms of colors, spaces, painting, and gold luster. Her creative process is always an improvisation.
