Stephen Baca

Santa Clara Pueblo

Stephen Baca is a potter from Santa Clara Pueblo. There's not a lot of info available about him. I have found that he's collaborated with Julie Gutierrez and he sometimes signs his pottery with a bear paw hallmark. Most of his pottery appears to be redware and blackware with sgraffito designs typical of Santa Clara: the avanyu, feathers, flowers and geometrics. He also appears to have liked inlaid stones now and then.
