Amanda Tafoya learned pottery making from her mother Sharon Naranjo Tafoya. She is from the Tewa pueblo of Santa Clara, along the Rio Grande river. Her Tewa name translates as Evening Star.This pot of hers measures 4.5 x 5.5 inches and is SOLD

By Dolores Lewis, daughter of the late Lucy Lewis, with the lightning design Lucy pioneered after she herself was struck by lightning. 4.75 by 6.25 inches. I purchased this not quite two years ago from the renowned trader John Kennedy Sr., who, a month shy of his 100th birthday had purchased a few pots from Dolores. It was to be the last time as he finally retired. He had bought pottery from Dolores' mother back when Dolores and her sisters were all little girls and so had bought pottery from and been close friends with Dolores and her sister Emma for approaching 70 years.

$600.
