Ulysses Reid traditional pottery firing demonstration

August 19, 2017

Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 9 am, free!

Ulysses Reid of Zia Pueblo will demonstrate traditional Zia Pueblo pottery making and firing methods at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology (CNMA) beginning on Saturday, August 19 at 9am. Ulysses will continue this two-day workshop on the following day, Sunday, August 20th. This is a free event and will certainly be popular so make sure to arrive early to secure a place at the demonstration site on the north end of the CNMA building.

Ulysses has partnered with the Office of Archaeological Studies on many occasions and most recently during the Zia Agricultural Fields trip for the Friends of Archaeology, last month. Ulysses is a stickler for detail when creating his art and uses only traditional materials in his pottery making and his finished ceramic work is truly exceptional. This will be a very unique opportunity to see Zia Pueblo ceramics created and fired in the traditional manner.

Please check back on this website for updates.

The Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road) is located off of Caja del Rio Road, across from Challenge New Mexico on the way to the Santa Fe Municipal Golf Course. Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road. CNMA is on the left-hand side of the road and is the large building with white sail-like skylights on the roof.
