Al Qöyawayma hand forms rare and unique ceramic masterpieces. He uses the traditional coil technique and sculptural relief technique known as the repoussé. The theme of Al's work reflects "origins" of America's first people, architecture and civilizations. Al says that "the theme examines who we are as a people, our migrations, how we live and what is important to us". The shapes and motifs of each piece are reflected in the hues of natural hand processed clays from the high mesas of northern Arizona, U.S.A. The high relief produces dramatic light and shadow effects.
