    Native Pueblo women and men from the southwestern United States are famous for their handmade pottery. They often dig the clay and build their pots with clay coils, rather than forming them on a potter’s wheel. Pueblo pottery reflects many different regions and native nations. For example in the Kayenta region, black-on-white pottery is made. Find pictures of Pueblo pottery to see the variety of beautiful colors and designs. Then make a replica of this popular type of art.
