Hubert Candelario (San Felipe)

About the Artist

As a potter, Hubert is a self-taught artist. He began working with clay when he was about nineteen, experimenting with different types of clay until he found his own unique style. Since there are very few potters from San Felipe Pueblo, Hubert was not able to benefit from learning the techniques from other potters but had to experiment with his own personal style. He says, “As a contemporary Native American Indian potter I have no limits, only choices. There are only [a few] potters at San Felipe Pueblo and I’m one.”
