Elizabeth Medina Travel Mug

  • $25.00

In January 2015, five Pueblo potters, Erik Fender (San Ildefonso), Elizabeth Medina (Zia), Frederica Antonio (Acoma), Patricia Lowden (Acoma), and Robin Teller (Isleta) were commissioned to commemorate the opening of the first native American-owned Starbucks, located at Avanyu Plaza across the street from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (Albuquerque, New Mexico), by each crafting a Starbucks-style clay mug to be exhibited in the store. 

There was such a strong public reaction and desire for ownership that ceramic versions bearing the original designs were put into production by Shumakolowa Native Arts, with Pueblo Pottery Mugs becoming an immediate hit.
