The Heard hosted master artist, Ron Carlos (Salt River Pima Maricopa), to demonstrate the paddle and anvil technique. This technique is a distinctive style used by southern Arizona tribes; i.e. Maricopa, Pima, Tohono O’Odham. Students learned the entire pottery making process: from processing raw clay, to paddle and anvil forming, painting, and firing.
