Carol Lucero-Gachupin storyteller

 

 

The storyteller at left features two children and measures 4.5 inches tall. Your price $220 ~ Item #ST413. Includes Shipping! NOW TAKE 40% OFF LISTED PRICE

 

 

Carol Lucero-Gachupin is from Jemez Pueblo and the Lucero family of potters which includes Margarita Lucero (mother), Mary R. Lucero, Mary I. Lucero, Virginia and Diane Lucero, and Marie Romero. Marie was her teacher and gave Carol her sound foundation in the creating of traditional Jemez pottery. Carol specializes in forms with Hopi, Navajo and Pueblo styles of hair and dress. Her babies are intelligent in appearance, reflected in the fact that many are reading books at an early age. The figures have blankets that flutter and skirts that flare out creating the effect of motion. She also places felt on the bottom of the pieces.

Carol's work is highly sophisticated and of finer detail than most which has earned her an excellent reputation for quality as well as higher prices for her work. A storyteller by Carol Lucero-Gachupin is worth every cent. Her work is featured in Gregory Schaaf's "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies" and"Southwest Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni" by Hayes and Blom.

Juanita Yepa

We met Juanita as she was packing up her work at the Governor's Palace in Santa Fe. This piece really impressed us with its size and complex assortment of children and baskets. There is a touch of poster paint (the green and blue) and some clear acrylic on the hair to give it a deeper black color. It's a wonderful piece measuring 11 inches tall and 9 inches wide with 9 children. Your cost $495 ~ Item #ST344 Click here to see an enlargement. Includes Shipping! NOW TAKE 40% OFF LISTED PRICE
