Miniature Micaceous Pottery. $25-$35.

Track Mini Pots

Three of Taos Pueblo’s potters create affordable miniatures on a regular basis. All are fashioned in the traditional way from the Pueblo’s iconic micaceous clay: The tiny pots, bowls, and ollas are all hand-coiled in the same manner as full-sized pieces, their only ornamentation the glimmer of the native mica, and fired to varying finishes.

The pieces above and immediately below are by Wings’s cousin, Bernadette Track:
