Frederica Antonio has been an active Acoma Pueblo potter since 1986 working with traditional polychrome and black-on white fine line pots, bowls and jars. She is the wife of Randy Antonio (with whom she sometimes collaborates), cousin of Melissa Antonio, and daughter-in-law of Mildred Antonio who was also her teacher. She has won several first place awards at varied venues including the New Mexico State Fair and the Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial. Her work is included in "Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery" by Berger and Schiffer; "Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies" by Gregory Schaaf; and "Southwest Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni" by Hayes & Blom.

Frederica's work is truly outstanding and she is at the very top of the Acoma eye dazzler, fine line motif artists. This pot is not that large but we chose it for excellence of design execution, shape and very thin walls. Frederica and Melissa's work have become the standard by which other eye dazzler pots can be measured. Frederica's work has grown appreciatively in value and demand over the last several years.

Sandra has been doing her traditional pottery for over 20 years and enjoys it very much. She has lived at Sky City, Acoma Pueblo, all her life.

Sandra states in her biography: "The way I learned was watching my grandmother (Lita L. Garcia) making her pottery. So I thought I would try. Pottery making was handed down from generation to generation. When I work with my pottery clay, it is something special to me. I can create new shapes of pottery and I imagine what designs I will use. It brings great pride to me and my family to see my artwork in galleries and in people's homes."  by Gregory Schaaf, "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies"
