New Collaboration with Harlan Reano

This week in the studio, we're happy to announce a new collaborative series of work between Preston and Kewa Pueblo artist Harlan Reano!

This week in the studio, we're happy to announce a new collaborative series of work between Preston and Kewa Pueblo artist Harlan Reano!  The product of this collaboration will be an exhibition at Blue Rain Gallery in May 2015!

Harlan is best known for his works made with his wife, Cochiti Pueblo potter Lisa Holt.  Check out their website here: Lisa Holt & Harlan Reano.

Preston is working with Harlan to create vessel forms and figures similar to his pottery work, then translating his painted designs to sandcarved motifs.  This is truly a unique collaboration for the studio.  We can't wait to see how the pieces turn out!

Here are some photos our friend and photographer Russell Johnson took this week in the studio.  Enjoy!
