Juanita Fragua, of the Jemez Pueblo, is of the Corn Clan and has been an active potter since the 1950s. She was taught by her mother, Rita Magdalena, and has taught several prominent potters including Clifford Fragua, Glendora Fragua, Barbara Jean Chavez Fragua, and Dennis Daubs. She is respected as a leader in the Jemez pottery revival and the promotion of the arts. She began winning awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market in 1980 and continues to do so today.
Juanita is probably the only person remaining today at Jemez that creates swirl melon pots of this style by using her fingers to push and form the clay from the inside of the pot outward into these elegant and perfect swirls. Juanita’s clays and colors are always natural and her black paint is a secret that creates a unique tone of black that no one has been able to reproduce.
