The Process









Digging Clay at Jemez



The creation of a figure begins with a pickax,
breaking the clay out of the ground.

Not an easy task,
especially in the heat of the summer.
Mixiing


In the traditional method, the clay is prepared
by mixing, soaking, wetting, and sifting.  A process
that takes several days.




















































The features then emerge by carving.

"When I start, I have an idea of what I want it to do,
but a lot of times, the clay goes where it wants to."
