RUS­SELL A. SANCHEZ (SAN ILDE­FONSO)

Native American Art - - GUIDE TO MARKET -

At 12 years old, Rus­sell A. Sanchez learned to make pot­tery from his great-aunt Rose Gon­za­les. His art­work uti­lizes the tra­di­tional tech­niques of hand-coil­ing, stone pol­ish­ing and fir­ing, but he con­tin­ues to be an in­no­va­tor. Sanchez ex­per­i­ments with color, form and ma­te­rial, and he is known for in­cis­ing high-grade turquoise and heishi shell into his pieces.
