From 800 AD to the 1700s, Caddo tribal pottery was prized across the American Southwest and traded as far as France and Spain. The tradition was almost lost when the last Caddo potter, a matriarch of the tribe, stopped making pottery in 1908. In a lecture titled “Caddo Ceramic Traditions and Trajectories,” Chase Kahwinhut Earles, discusses his decades-long effort to help revive, master, and honor ancestral Caddo pottery traditions in order to establish a path forward as a contemporary artist and develop a modern narrative.
Earles’s work has won many awards at Indian art markets and has been exhibited and collected by the Dallas Museum of Art, the Gilcrease Museum, the Spiro Mound Archaeological Center, the Carlos Museum, and many more.
This program has been developed in collaboration with the Atlanta Beltline’s Art on the Beltline project.
