A spotlight on Zia Potter Ruby Panana

A spotlight on Zia Potter Ruby Panana 0

Zia Potter Ruby PananaRuby Panana has been a creating stunning pottery since 1983. Her pottery began winning awards from the very first time it was exhibited. Ruby's work encompasses many forms from jars, bowls, vases, wedding vases and even canteens. She produces some of the largest Zia pottery pieces.  Her works of art are painted with natural materials - clay, rocks, sand, and she creates black from wild spinach.  Her brushes are created traditionally by chewing yucca to create the perfect tool. 

Ruby's gorgeous works are on exhibit in noted Southwest galleries: The Indian Craft Shop, the Museum of Northern Arizona, and the US Department of the Interior in Washington DC.  You can find her pottery in major collections, including the Wright Museum at Harvard. 

Zia Potter Ruby PananaSteve and I wanted to share with you the beautiful works of the Zia Potter, Ruby Panana.  We are prompted by the latest edition of the Native American Art Magazine, which is featuring POTTERY.   Ruby is a wonderful person and works very hard to bring to life the clay she coils.  We hope you will enjoy the selection below and possibly find one or two, that will fit into your collection.

We are always just an email or phone call away.
Always happy to answer questions.

Sonoita - Sawmill FIRE

Sonoita - Sawmill FIRE 0

4/26/2017  Sawmill Fire between Tucson and Sonoita - now at 40,350 acres (doubled since this morning)  Nizhoni Ranch Gallery is south of the fire and safe - keeping our fingers crossed.

Steve has been volunteering at the Fairgrounds which is Command Central for the Fire Fighters, Red Cross, sanctuary for people and animals evacuated, and etc. as you can see in the photos below.

Currently Highway 83 south to Sonoita (from I-10) is closed.  So if you have plans to visit the Gallery anytime soon, check with us on the road closures.  We are still open and operating and the delivery services are still running.  

Our internet repeater tower was destroyed and our internet service was down for 2 days.  We changed providers - so we are back up and running!

 4/27 update:  Steve went to a meeting with the Fire Control group this morning.
Next week,  the Sonoita Horse Races are scheduled. The fire has added so many complications! This will hopefully be the 102nd consecutive year that the race has run. <Everyone has their fingers crossed!> 

4/28 update:  The fire has consumed nearly 47,000 acres and is 40% contained.  The fire storm has calmed down, hopefully the winds will slow down as well, it's the key to taming this beast.

Good news! Highway 83 is open, AND the Horse Races and Kentucky Derby Simulcast WILL be held at the Sonoita Fair Grounds May 6-7.
