Melissa Antonio is of the Acoma Pueblo Red Corn and Sun Clans and has been an active potter since the 1980s working with traditional and slip cast polychrome jars, bowls and vases. Her teachers were Lilie Concho and Mildred Antonio, her mother-in-law. Melissa has won a number of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the New Mexico State Fair, the Eight Northern Pueblos Arts & Crafts Show, and the Inter-Tribal Ceremonial. She is very well known for her creative, perfectly executed graphics. Her traditional, hand coiled pottery is widely collected and included in many known collections. By using slip cast pottery, Melissa’s beautiful graphic designs and flawless technique are considerably more accessible for those not committed to collecting traditionally made authentic Native American art.
Melissa’s work and achievements are included in Dr. Gregory Schaaf’s book “Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies”; Berger and Schiffer’s “Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery”; and Rich Dillingham’s “Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery”.
