Alicia Kelsey – Acoma
Alicia Kelsey was born in 1979 into the Acoma Pueblo. She was introduced into pottery making by her Mother, Darla Davis. Darla began involving Alicia with the clay making process at the age of 11.
Alicia specializes in the handmade traditional styled Acoma pottery with parrots and elements of the earth. Alicia was taught where to get clay from the sacred Pueblo grounds and learned how to clean and grind it to a fine powder. Then she will mix it with pottery shards from other broken pottery in order to recycle the old pottery and reuse it so that nothing goes to waste.
