Polly Rose Folwell

Born in 1962, Polly Rose Folwell makes pottery the traditional way at Santa Clara Pueblo. She learned how through watching and working with her mother, Jody Folwell, as she grew up. She has passed that knowledge on to her daughter, Kaa Folwell.

Polly Rose has earned many ribbons over the years at places like the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Gallup InterTribal Ceremonials and the Heard Museum Guild Indian Art Fair & Market in Phoenix. In 2009-2010 the Heard featured works by Polly Rose, her mother Jody and sister, Susan Folwell, in their "Mothers & Daughters: Stories in Clay" exhibit.
