REYES PINO (1950– )

ZIA POLYCHROME JAR 1993


In our opinion, Reyes Pino's aunt Kathy (1934– ) was one of the finest pottery painters ever to work at Zia, and we've been in awe of some of her pieces. Sadly, Kathy suffered a stroke several years ago and hasn't worked since, and equally sadly from our point of view, Horlow & Lanmon's 2003 The Pottery of Zia Pueblo barely mentions Kathy and ignores Reyes completely, even though one of her pieces went to the Museum of New Mexico collection in 1961, according to Schaaf's Southern Pueblo Pottery. You can see this jar on page 163 of the First Edition of our Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni and see another example of Reyes' range on page 165, a piece which appears on page 189 of the Second Edition. Reyes learned many of her aunt Kathy's skills. You can see two totally different of Kathy's work on page 187 of our Second Edition, and if you compare them with this piece and Kathy's piece on page 189, you can see the connections. This also appears on page 37 of our Pottery of the Southwest.
