Pottery making in Laguna Pueblo had almost died in the mid-twentieth century when Gladys Pacquin began making pots in 1980. Her work brings a fresh, new look to the historic forms and images of her pueblo as she decorates the traditional shaped ollas, bowls and canteens with combinations of original designs inspired by her life. These incorporate Laguna Pueblo motifs with Zuni, the home of her mother. This blending has led to a unique style. Each piece is made entirely from natural materials by hand using traditional methods of clay construction-coil method, decoration -painted using vegetal and mineral pigments and open air firing using cow chips and cedar wood in an outdoor kiln.
