Born in 1972, Kevin Naranjo (Turquoise Mountain) learned his pottery skills from his grandmother, Ursulita Naranjo, and his mother, Geri Naranjo. Among his numerous awards are a "Best of Division" at the 1999 Santa Fe Indian Market and a "Best of Pottery" at the 1992 Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonies.
Kevin works mostly with blackware and sgraffito designs that incorporate his love for nature and wildlife with traditional geometric designs. He also includes the traditional Santa Clara bear paw into nearly all his work, often in a sienna spot.
Kevin signs his pottery: "Kevin Naranjo, Santa Clara Pueblo".
