Wilfred Garcia, Jr. was born into the Acoma Pueblo in 1954 and was inspired to learn the art of working with clay from his mother-in-law, the late Stella Shutiva. She taught him all the fundamentals of working with clay and using the ancient traditional methods that have been passed down from generation to generation. Wilfred has established himself as a fine contemporary potter. He creates many shapes of pottery vessels such as seed pots,vases, and Mesa Verde motif vases. He is known for the time and attention put into each pot so that each piece is "special". His sister-in-law is Jackie Histia-Shutiva. He has won several awards (including Best in Show) at the Santa Fe Market and is included in several publications including Schaaf's"Southern Pueblo Pottery Artist Biographies", and "Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni" by Hayes and Blom.
