Dusty Naranjo

Born into Santa Clara Pueblo in 1968, Dusty Naranjo is the daughter of Bernice Naranjo, granddaughter of Rose Naranjo, sister of Forrest Naranjo. She learned the traditional art of making pottery mostly from her mother, who also taught her to make the family trademark brownware. Her designs were later influenced by her aunt, Jody Folwell. Most of Dusty's work consists of sgraffito designs on brownware jars, seedpots and vases.
