Vessel Forms: Jars/ollas, plates/bowls, vases, and eccentrics such as crosses, turtles, birds, and coffee pots.

Style: Painted in polychrome, black-on-white using traditional coil, wheel thrown and ceramic mold techniques.

Comments: Albert Alvidrez is the former Tribal Governor of Ysleta Del Sur.

Yolanda Alvidrez is Albert's mother and together they may be the last potters of Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo. We assume that Yolanda taught Albert the tradition of pottery making.
