Santa Clara Pueblo

Ron Suazo is a full- blooded Native American Indian from the Santa Clara Pueblo.

Ron’s pottery style comes from watching his mother; who taught Ron how to coil, polish, and fire his pottery. Ron created his designs from studying ancient pueblo styles and early designs from generations prior.

He visited several museums and looked intently at the pottery created by the Ancient Pueblo Indians, and was deeply impressed. Ron decided to create his own style, but to call upon his studies of early and ancient designs.

Ron’s style has become one of unique black polish and matte finish with feather designs, bear paws, and other early styles. Ron will add stones to his work such as turquoise, coral, and malachite.

From the day Ron sparked an interest in pottery making, he hoped that his work would be unique and stand apart from all the others. It is believed that Ron has accomplished his goal.

Every one of his pots are copy righted,therefore, every one is an original design.
