Charlieware, the Pottery
Charlie Anderson calls his pottery Charlieware and his style Pueblo Fusion. He uses designs found on Ancestral Puebloan pots as well as elements from modern Pueblo pottery. His designs are not true to any specific Pueblo but may include portions of several different Pueblos as well as images from Mimbres pottery from southern New Mexico. Charlie is also greatly influenced by the potters of Mata Ortiz, Mexico, where he learned to make and use human hair brushes. For ten years he spent vacations living and making pottery with different families in this small Mexican village.
Charlie has lived most of his life in the American Southwest. This allowed him to explore the ruins and examine artifacts of the Ancestral Puebloan culture who lived in the Four Corners area in the years surrounding AD 1000.
Charlieware pottery is suitable for kitchen use and can go in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Stop by Sedona Artist Market and check out Charlieware in
