Clayton Lucero

Born in December 1985 to Diane Lucero and Joseph Fragua, Clayton Lucero is a traditional potter from Jemez Pueblo. He grew up in a house full of potters but he was never interested until he finished high school. Then he got serious and studied with his parents to learn the traditional ways.

Clayton says he's happiest when he's making storytellers, nativities and bear figures. He says he gets his inspiration from his parents and has learned to see life as they do and how to transpose that view into his pottery. You'll notice his storyteller figures are all looking up to the heavens with their mouths wide open in song.
