You are entering a world of magic where ceramist David Salk, turning clay into
beautiful and functional pottery, is integrating past, present and future!
David is resolved to preserve the beautiful work of the Native American people
for present and future generations by replicating antique basket designs in long lasting,
high fire pottery. These "clay baskets" are the unique work of David Salk representing
the work of Native American women of the late 1800's and early 1900's.
David is also trying to preserve and popularize the beautiful rock art found
throughout the Southwest as well as the stunning and intriguing ancient pottery designs
of the Anasazi, Mimbres and Pueblo cultures that thrived in this same area over a
thousand years ago. This pottery is highly glazed and functional and can be enjoyed as
unique and stunning serving pieces.
