Grace Chino (1929-1994) was a daughter of Marie Z. Chino and learned a lot about the traditional art of pottery making as she grew up with her sisters Carrie Charlie Chino and Rose Chino Garcia. Grace made Mimbres-Revival and traditional Acoma pottery, following directly in her mother's footsteps by experimenting with the vessel shapes and with the designs she used.
