Adrian Vallo was born into the Acoma pueblo in 1964. He began his interest in pottery making when he was 20 years old. Mr. Vallo was inspired to make hand coiled pottery by his grandmother, the late Santana Cerno. Santana taught Adrian to coil, shape, paint and fire pottery.
Adrian specializes in the hand coiled traditional style shaped pots and designs. He paints traditional designs, deer patterns and parrot motifs with natural pigments. “They are more challenging to create and I enjoy the challenge,” Adrian said. Adrian signs his pottery: A. Vallo, Acoma. He is related to the late Santana Cerno (granmother), Eva Histia (grandmother), Joseph and Barbara Cerno (uncle and aunt) and Ergil Vallo (cousin).
