Frances Pino Torivio (1905-2001) was a traditional potter from Acoma Pueblo. As mother (and teacher) of Wanda Aragon and Lilly Maria Salvador, she was one of the early matriarchs in the Acoma pottery families.
Frances was known for making beautiful large jars and was still proudly showing her wares at the Santa Fe Indian Market when she was 96 years old. Her legacy lives on in the many younger potters who learned from her over the years.
