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.
