Lonnie Vigil – The Master of Micaceous Clay
Thursday, June 9, 2016, 9:00 am–3:00 pm, $250 per person
Master potter Lonnie Vigil (Nambe Pueblo) was SAR’s first recipient of the Ronald and Susan Dubin Native Artist Fellowship in 1994. His works adorn the shelves of SAR, MIAC, and numerous collectors. On this field trip Lonnie takes you on his personal journey from Washington, D.C. back to Nambe Pueblo, leaving a career in financial and business consulting, and finding his soul’s work in micaceous clay. He will demonstrate how he works with clay as he creates a pot before your eyes, telling you of his life, the process of working with clay, and what has influenced him and inspired his designs. You will visit his home and studio and become immersed in Lonnie’s world of clay. A Pueblo Feast meal, prepared by Lonnie’s relatives, will be served.
