Q: So how many issues of JPG magazine were produced?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

The hand and handiwork of Acoma Native American Artist George Miller. The clay used to form the pottery, which is done by rolling long chords and then coiling and shaping it, comes from the land itself. The red-ish color is achieved by grinding up rocks and mixing water into a powdery paste. All the patterns and symbols have spiritual meaning, most often related to rain, lightning and thunder. The kilns used to fire pottery are dug in the ground, and dried manure is used as fuel. George learned his skill from his Grandmother. He sells it year-round by the side of the road at a scenic view stop overlooking the Acoma land and Sky City Pueblo in New Mexico. He also works as a part-time night security guard. We met on 10/29/08 when I stopped to enjoy the scenic view, and then ended up purchasing a couple of George's creations. His mother was also selling some of her art there.
