In 2012, the IARC brought together seven potters from San Felipe Pueblo to discuss the past, present, and future of pottery making in their community. The potters met three times over the course of the year to grapple with various issues such as how to define pottery from San Felipe and what it means to be a potter from the Pueblo. During their meetings, they also shared ideas, materials, and techniques related to creating pottery.

Virtually unknown to the general public, San Felipe pottery is distinct not in its designs or patterns, but because of a consistent trend of experimentation and innovation that cuts across many art forms at the Pueblo. One outcome of these seminars will be that the IARC staff will work with these potters to create an online exhibit that explores the complexities surrounding San Felipe pottery.
