Judy Tafoya - Santa Clara Pueblo  

Judy Tafoya was born on January 12, 1962 and is the granddaughter of Christina Naranjo. She specializes in carving red and black large water jars and bowls with bear paws. She has won awards at Santa Fe Indian Market and Eight Northern Pueblos Arts & Crafts Show. She is the sister of Sharon Garcia. She says that her favorite part of the process is the polishing. She gathers all of her materials from the Santa Clara Pueblo and fires all of her pottery outdoors. Judy's husband Lincoln quite frequently make pottery together.


This is a highly polished hand-formed Santa Clara blackware pot. It is in excellent condition and was made ca. 2002. The pot is incised on the bottom "Judy & Lincoln Tafoya Santa Clara Pue -2005-" and measures 9" height x 12" diameter. Slight scalloped pie crust at flared lip from thumb impressions. Impressed band from neck to shoulder creating a nice silhouette.

Gallery Cost: $6525. Does not include applicable sales tax, shipping and packing cost.
