About Me

Hello,

 My name is Gaylon Westika. I am a traditional Zuni Potter here in Zuni. I have been making pottery for 25 years. My work is made using natural clay and pigments. People who have influenced me are my parents Anderson and Avelia Peynetsa. Also traveling to different art shows and seeing other art influenced me to create my pottery. How I make my pieces unique is by using traditional designs but making adjustments to give my own style. I try to keep the tradition going by doing the same techniques and methods our ancestors used.
