Kenneth James Sando

Born in 1963, Kenneth James Sando is a potter from Jemez Pueblo. He was inspired to become a potter by two of his closest friends: Don Chinina and Gabriel Cajero. They also taught him the fundamentals of the traditional craft.

Kenneth specializes in storyteller figures, although he will sometimes make a pot. He also makes clowns, corn maidens, turtles and bears, all of hand-dug clay, hand-coiled style and natural paints.
