Below is a list of Native American (and Mata Ortiz) ceramic artists whose creations I have come across. The list will never be complete as excellent new artists are popping up all the time. I don't know that I will ever be able to post any kind of bio information about most of the people in the list as most Native Americans (and Mata Ortiz potters) prefer to live quiet, private lives. For some, there is only a list of accomplishments as recognized by the outside world. A few have become famous enough that thick coffee-table books have been published about them. Part of my effort in this site is to tie in what biographical info I can find with photos of some of the creations of the individual artists.
Does any of this effort make me an expert? Absolutely not. But I do get a close-up view of many, many beautiful creations. In all of this, I am deeply indebted to the good people at Andrea Fisher Fine Pottery: If you have questions, they're the people to ask.
