King Galleries is pleased to represent the Pueblo pottery of many of today’s leading potters. Over the years, we have taken the time to get to know each of our gallery artists. As each new piece comes into the gallery, we talk with the artist, finding out about the time and thought that goes into their work. It is important with contemporary pottery to understand the designs and motivation of the artist and their work. Over time, we feel as if we have a friendship as well as a business relationship with most of the potters.
Each piece of pottery that we have in the gallery is hand coil built, stone polished, painted and almost all are traditionally fired. One of our goals here at the gallery has been to encourage the use of traditional methods of making and firing pottery while encouraging the potters to be creative and innovative in their forms and designs. With each Native American potter, there is so much history, culture and tradition in their work, it often takes some time to interpret the full depth of any one piece!
While King Galleries is pleased to represent many of today’s leading potters, we also encourage the work of many talented, younger potters. We have long felt that it is very important to encourage those potters who are just beginning their careers. We take the time to talk about their pottery and discuss ways to improve their technique, designs and their future. Mr. King works closely with all of the gallery potters. They are given feedback on what collectors think of new work, they discuss where the artist is going with their work, new trends, new ideas and providing an understanding of the market. We are always excited when we have work by these younger artists in the gallery and can watch them grow over time!
