to make a Purchase
was born at Jemez Pueblo and married into Zia Pueblo where she
was taught Zia pottery by her mother-in-law, Sophia Medina. She
is the daughter of Mary S. Tofoya and sister of Bertina
Tosa whose work is featured on our Jemez Pueblo pages. The
hallmarks of her work are clean lines, solid colors, inspired
designs and excellent pot shape - ideally, every quality you'd
look for in purchasing a great pot. Nothing is sloppy or half-hearted
and there's a lot of pride in her work. We feel she is arguably
the best Zia potter today which is why we purchase several
her pieces at a time. (Photo
