Judy Tafoya

Santa Clara Pueblo


I was 23 when I returned to Santa Clara Pueblo, having made the full circle to start another life. I’ve been making pottery figures since I was a child, and began in earnest in 1984 making small bowls and nativity sets. These designs come from inside me, and the pots will show me what designs they want. My style is traditional, and I work in the black deep-carved style pots.
