Sherry Tafoya

Sherry Tafoya (b. 1956 in Santa Clara Pueblo) is the daughter of potter Mida Tafoya, a granddaughter of Christina Naranjo and a great granddaughter of Serafina Tafoya. Sherry carries on the family tradition of a beautiful finish on sharply incised black and red ware.

There is an interview with Sherry where she demonstrates how she makes her pottery and talks about what the shapes and designs mean to her.
