Santa Clara Pueblo potter Jason Ebelacker
Jason Ebelacker

Born in 1980, Jason Ebelacker is the son of James Ebelacker, grandson of Virginia Ebelacker and great-grandson of Margaret Tafoya. He learned pottery making by watching his father as he was growing up, then he refined what he'd learned in his own way.

Jason has always preferred making classic Santa Clara shapes but he has been carving more contemporary geometrics into them. And he's doing more two color pots.

Jason has entered into juried competitions in places like the Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Museum Guild Indian Art Fair & Market. He's earned ribbons at both. Jason's work has also been featured in several books on Santa Clara pottery and Margaret Tafoya's family several generations later.
