Teresita Naranjo: Santa Clara Style Pottery

Teresita Naranjo is celebrated as one of the finest 20th century potters from Santa Clara Pueblo. Her unexpected death in 1999 was a loss to all pottery collectors. She was active artistically from 1935 to 1999, and was famous for her black and redware carved works in the Santa Clara style.

She was the daughter of Victor and Christina Naranjo and wife of Joe Naranjo. After her husband's passing in 1950, she supported her family solely through sales of her superb pottery.
