Lisa Holt (Cochiti) and Harlan Reano (Santo Domingo/Kewa) have been creating pottery together since 1999. Holt is of Cochiti Pueblo heritage on her mother’s side, and comes from an illustrious family of artists, including her uncle, Virgil Ortiz. She learned the art of pottery from her mother, Inez Ortiz, and her grandmother, well-known Cochiti potter Seferina Ortiz. Holt uses clay from Cochiti Pueblo to sculpt pottery that is then painted by Reano.
Reano is Santo Domingo/Kewa on his mother’s side, and his painted designs are sometimes inspired by older Santo Domingo pottery. The two artists complete their collaborations by firing the pots together.
