“Untitled,” 2009, 20in. x 13in. x 6in., native clay
Lisa Holt and Harlan Reano
Surrounded by ancient artifacts in the National Museum of the American Indian’s permanent collection stands Lisa Holt and Harlan Reano’s traditional pottery. The husband-and-wife team has taken the Native American pottery scene by storm, winning awards at the Smithsonian Craft Show and the Santa Fe Indian Market. Holt, who hails from a family of potters, hand-coils the pieces; Reano paints the designs. Traditional through and through, they dig for their materials in the Jemez Mountains, north of Albuquerque, N.M., and fire their art using cedar wood. Holt and Reano were featured in the June 2006 issue of AmericanStyle.
