Carlos Laate

Carlos Laate is a potter from Zuni Pueblo. Jennie Laate was his aunt and Daisy Hooee his step-grandmother. He learned the basics of making Zuni pottery from them but has branched out since and is making his own path using traditional Zuni methods and designs. He has been making pottery since 1989 and his design elements cover all the traditional motifs: rainbirds, deer, heart lines, rosettes, lines, curves, and geometrics.
