Contemporary and Traditional Artworks

Selections of both contemporary and historical objects are on display in this showcase.


Romero has merged traditional forms and techniques with contemporary art imagery. Traditional techniques include hand coiling, polished slip decoration, and a spirit break in the rim. The 14 karat gold rim is certainly contemporary, as is the inscription along the rim in gold: Chongo made and painted me 'Return of the Saucerman'. This work is currently on display, come see it up close and study the details.
