Adrian Trujillo also comes from a long line of sculptors/potters. A noted Acoma Pueblo Potter, he comes from a distinguished line of potters including Sarah Garcia of the Turkey Clan and his mother Jesse Garcia. His work is featured in the renowned Native American Museum in Washington DC.
Steeped in a tradition that dates back thousands of years, he uses all natural materials that are gathered from tribal lands. Each vessel is created in the time-honored manner, hand coiled, shaped and molded with gourd scrapers, smoothed with a stone and painted with a slip of fine clay and water. One of the more notable traits of Trujillo’s work is its size and his intricate line drawings done with a yucca brush. One of his vessels on display at Goldenstein Galley measures 30 inches in diameter and 30 inches in height.
