Nambe is made by a small group of Santa Fe craftsmen using sand molds. A bowl or platter is broken away from its mold and shaped and polished to a silvery luster that, with age, acquires a patina all its own. Because each sand mold is used only once, no two pieces are exactly alike
The word "Nambé" (pronounced na:m'bei), comes from the Native American Tewa tradition, meaning "People of the round earth." The native people have described Nambé as being "born of the earth and the fertile imagination."
