Marvin Blackmore

Durango, CO

By 1989, pottery was Marvin’s medium of choice, being initially drawn to the pueblo-style carved pottery with gloss and matte black finishes, famously known in the Southwest as Black-on-Black pottery. In the mid 1990's he developed a two-tone technique by adding a layer of a colored clay slip and then carving exceptional detailed designs through the slip to the base color of the pot.
