Garrett Maho, Hopi-Tewa, Arizona
Garrett Maho began making pottery in 1996, under the mentorship of his grandmother, Marilyn Mahle, and his aunt, Gloria Mahle. Garret is of the Rabbit/ Tobacco Clan. He’s won numerous awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Museum Show. Recently, he was awarded "Best of Pottery" at the Heard Show in 2018.
While using traditional techniques, Garrett incorporates innovative designs. Along with the distinctive fire clouds, a result of traditional firing, Garrett follows the original process of ‘painting’ pigments using mineral base and natural brushes— yucca strips and softened wood fibers.
