Native Pottery Demonstration Series: Franklin Peters (Acoma Pueblo)
The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture (MIAC) invites you to virtually join potter Randy Chitto (Mississippi Choctaw) on Wednesday, October 29, 2021, at 10 a.m. MST for MIAC’s popular Native Pottery Demonstration series via Zoom.

Born into the Sky Clan on Acoma Pueblo, Franklin Peters learned the art of pottery making as he grew up surrounded by some of Acoma's most distinguished potters. In 2011, Franklin was honored with the Rollin and Mary Ella King Native Artist Fellowship at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe. While there he studied the methods and designs of his Acoma ancestors and how to incorporate those methods and designs into his contemporary work. Today, Franklin's pottery is characterized by bold slips and colors. He likes sharp lines in his striking mixes of traditional and contemporary Acoma and Laguna designs. Being from the Sky Clan, Franklin says he is always praying for rain. On his pots, the thin fine lines symbolize rain and those constant prayers.

MIAC’s Pottery Demonstration series was on hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic but it returned in February 2021. Stay tuned for details on upcoming demonstrations and other programs by following our Facebook page.
