Marvin Martinez

Marvin Martinez was born into San Ildefonso Pueblo on September 9, 1964, son of Viola Sunset Cruz, grandson of Adam and Santana Martinez, great-grandson of Maria Martinez. Marvin has said he learned a lot about life from his great-grandmother but as it was his grandparents who raised him, he learned about pottery making from them. Today he and his wife Frances carry on the black-on-black tradition of the Martinez family.
