Robert Kasero Sr. learned the traditional art of making pottery from his wife, Acoma potter Paula Estevan. He specializes in similar striking designs on equally thin walls of clay. But he uses Laguna clay while she uses Acoma clay and while their designs are similar, each is clearly their own.
Robert lives at Acoma with Paula, among a pretty large clan of kids and grandkids. I asked both of them one day what it was like when they were working. Both said they work at the same time in the same room but not together. And the house is absolutely silent when either is painting.
There is an interview with Robert and Paula together where each demonstrates how they make their pottery and what their shapes and designs mean to them.
