Join us for the continuation of our popular Pueblo pottery series with Ada Suina and Martha Arquero, both of Cochiti Pueblo. Suina is highly respected for her storyteller figurines and her nacimientos, and has always been recognized as one of the premier figurine potters in Cochiti. Her storyteller figurines have strong, chiseled faces and happy expressions. Arquero specializes in handmade clay sculptures like mermaids, frog storytellers, nativities, and traditional storytellers. Both artists still use all natural materials, including vegetal and mineral dyes.
