Diane Lucero is a traditional potter from Jemez Pueblo. She was born in 1966 and while she learned the traditional methods from her mother, Mary R. Lucero as she grew up, she also says she learned most from her husband, Joseph Fragua. She didn't start really making pottery, however, until the late 1990s.
These days Diane often works in collaboration with her son Clayton Lucero. She often makes Santa Claus storyteller figures but she also likes to make seated grandmother storytellers with wide skirts.
