We are a family of Native American potters from Jemez Pueblo, New Mexico. Emily (Fragua) and Leonard began learning and making pottery and figurines as children along side their respective parents and grandparents.Together they taught me (Darrick) their long lived traditional art .
We specialize in hand-coiled traditional storytellers and animal figurines such as cats,dogs,horses and parrots. We gather and utilize the natural clay and paints found on the Jemez Pueblo reservation and Jemez Mountains making our entire pottery making process completely natural.
We are award winning artists that have won ribbons from the Santa Fe Indian Market,Eiteljorge Indian Market and many other juried art shows. We also participate in other Indian art shows such as the Gene Autry Indian Marketplace, Pueblo Grande, Heard Museum Indian Market and the Smithsonian"s National Museum of the American Indian Market.Our work and family history are published in Southern Pottery 2,000 Artists Biographies,Storyteller and Other Figurative Pottery,and Pueblo Family Pottery.
