The photo cannot capture the beauty and meaning of this ornament. This was bought as a gift for my son-in-law who shows bravery each day in his field of work, who grows each day into a finer man with my daughter who brings beauty into his life with her servant heart and kind spirit. It is my intention to remind them each of the gifts they bring to this sometimes-dark world; they are a shining bright light. Thank you, Eric, for the perfect Christmas gift created by you and given with love from my heart. Your artistic skill is exceptional, the timely delivery appreciated and the careful packaging kept the piece quite safe. Bless you and may you continue to find inspiration in your art.

Enjoy sharing meanings taught by grandmother and parents
Originally Acoma is known for the hand coiled, painted pottery which Eric still creates. About 38 years ago Eric’s mother, Corrine (bear clan), while firing a batch of painted pottery. Accidentally had one of her own hairs fall onto the pottery while it was still hot. From this mishap a unique way of decorating the pottery was invented. To add further creation to the pottery she collaborated with Eric’s father, Gary (yellow corn), to add etching to the pottery after the firing.
Eric’s lineage stems from renowned potters Marie Z Chino, Carrie Chino-Charlie, Corrine Louis, & Gary “yellow corn”.
Inspiration from his family created a great foundation of traditional & contemporary Acoma pottery. All the stories and meanings are told if you’ve gotten a chance to meet Eric. Eric, along with his wife Reena, are teaching their children; Trevor, Marisa, & Kirah.
