Roberta Shendo is from Jemez Pueblo. She has been an active potter since 1980 working with matte polychrome stone polished redware and buffware wedding vases and using clouds, corn plants and kiva steps as her principle graphic designs. Roberta’s work is carried by the Indian Craft Shop, U.S. Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C., and several other galleries of note. Her work has been published in Dr. Gregory Schaaf’s “Pueblo Indian Pottery: 750 Biographies”, Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni” by Hayes and Blom; and Berger and Schiffer’s “Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery”.
“Roberta Shendo is an exceptional pottery painter. Her compositions are complex, often swirling. Her eye for detail is delineated with graceful painted lines. Her stone polish on the areas outside the principle design is smooth and glossy.” Dr. Gregory Schaaf
