The Peynetsa Family

When it comes to Zuni pottery, the names of Anderson and Avelia Peynetsa come to mind. They have been making their beautiful Zuni pottery since the 1980s. They live at Zuni Pueblo, immersed in the Zuni culture and paint with natural slips and paints made with wildcrafted plants. When asked who the other potters are that have inspired them, the first person that comes up is their son Anderson Jamie (who goes by Jamie). His style is a mix of traditional symbolism with these new, dynamic, op-art designs. Avelia and Jamie often work  together, often collaborating on pieces. Jamie used to do small pieces, until he started painting Avelia’s large ones. Jamie, born in 1997, has already developed so much of his artistic talent. In 2008, he won 1st prize at Indian Market with his first pot. He also draws, paints, and makes Kachinas.
