Biography Mark Tahbo

Tahbo's pottery, inspired by petroglyphs, is made from local clay, and is hand-coiled and fired in a pit, which he does in the tradition of his ancestors. Designs are abstract and suggest animals, birds, butterflies, and clouds. He applies his color with a traditional yucca brush.
