Sharon "Butterfly or Turquoise" Stevens is a member of the Bear Clan. She was born into the Acoma Pueblo in 1960 and was inspired to continue the long lived family tradition of making pottery from her grandmother, the late Lolita Garcia, and her mother, Rosita Stevens. Lolita and Rosita taught Sharon the fundamentals of hand making traditional pottery using the ancient methods of their ancestors.
Sharon began experimenting with clay on her own at the age of 15. Sharon specializes in the hand coiled Acoma ollas.
Her favorite designs to paint are the turtleback (turtles are believed to bring you long life) and lizard designs (lizards are believed to bring good luck). She hand coils many shapes and sizes of pottery. Sharon enjoys working with larger pottery because she can be more creative with her designs.She signed her pottery, in this case,'Stevens'. Sharon is related to Virginia Garcia (sister) and Manuel Stevens (brother). This asymmetrical pot, indicative of the traditional hand-coiled method, was skillfully created by one of the Southwest's most prolific potters. The condition of this piece is in very good for its age. I inspected this very carefully after a client questioned the condition and it is just really well cared for. It has been in my possession almost 30 years and it has been cleaned with a feather duster and it sits in a locked vitrina, away from dust. No one touches my pottery but me. I always wear cotton gloves, so the wear and tear is very minimal. We have a smoke-free home as well. The measurements of this beautiful pottery is. It is also very light, due to it's delicate, thin walls. The price for this huge, incredible pot is well priced for the work it took to create it. We will send a current appraisal for this.
