A blackware vase by Minnie Vigil (Santa Clara-Poajoaque) who is best known for her polychrome ware. This was made about 20-25 years ago as Minnie, now 86, makes very little pottery anymore. 6.5 inches high. $400. (TUCSON)
A carved redware by Vickie Martinez Tafoya of Santa Clara. 12 inches high. $1500. (TUCSON)
Vickie was taught to pot by her grandmother Flora Naranjo and mother Barbara Martinez, but it was her mother-in-law, Stella Chavarria and her mother, Teresita Naranjo who helped her further develop and refine her work, encouraging her to take it to the next level. As a result, Stella’s and Teresita’s quality and style is evident in her work.
