Candelaria Suazo was born into Santa Clara Pueblo in the late 1950's and learned the fundamentals of traditional pottery making from her mother, Santanita Suazo. Dolores Curran and Geri Naranjo, her aunts, also had a hand in her learning. She's been producing pottery since 1987. Today she specializes in sgraffito two-tone styles.
There is an interview with Candelaria where she demonstrates how she makes her pottery and talks about what the shapes and designs mean to her. She even demonstrates how she makes her two-tone pottery.
