Santa Clara Pottery

Santa Clara and San Ildefonso have both been known for black pottery for over three centuries. A Santa Clara tradition is the creation of large storage jars with an indented bear paw design. The near-legendary families of Tafoya, Naranjo, Navasie and Gutierrez continue to make some of the finest pots in the world. Margaret Tafoya, the matriarch of Santa Clara Pueblo potters, passed away in February 2001 at the age of 96.
