Taos Pottery

Taos Pueblo pottery is distinctive due to the micaceous clay used at the Pueblo, which gives it a glittery appearance. Textured, appliqued or sculpted surface detail are common features of Taos pottery.

Taos Pueblo, the northernmost of all the Pueblos, sits at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in New Mexico.
