Glendora Fragua (Jemez)

About the Artist

Glendora has created a unique and recognizable pottery style with her precision sgrafitto on highly-polished red and buff clay vessels. Her use of other clay slips also gives her pieces more dimension. "My work is contemporary, but my methods are traditional," she says. Her designs often incorporate the creatures of the Southwest--dragonflies, lizards, turtles, etc--and she loves the cornstalk as well. "It represents my family's origin in the Corn Clan in jemez Pueblo."
