L. Lupe Lucero created these great Koshare/Clown storytellers. She is of Laguna/Jemez heritage and married into the San Filipe Pueblo. She has been active sine 1971 working with polychrome jars, bowls, figures, storytellers, clowns, mudheads and lizard effigy pots. Carrie R. Loretto (her mother) and Dorothy L. Trujillo (her sister) were her teachers.
Lupe has won 1st place at the New Mexico State Fair and has been published many times including in Hayes and Blom “Anasazi to Zuni: Southwestern Pottery”; “Storytellers & Other Figurative Pottery” by Congdon-Martin; Berger & Schiffer’s “Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery” and Gregory Schaaf’s “Southern Pueblo Pottery”. “Leonora Lucero is one of the Loretto sisters. Her pottery is made from Jemez clays and colors. She participated in the popular movement to create figural pottery in the 1970s and 1980s. She makes Clown Storytellers with corn husk tassels. Often they are feasting on watermelons. Leonora gathers natural clay and fires her figures outdoors in a pit.” Dr. Gregory Schaaf
