Santa Clara

Butterfly Blossom

5" H x 3 3/4" D


Madeline E. Naranjo was born in 1971 as a member of the Santa Clara-Tewa Pueblo. She was taught the fundamentals of hand coiling traditional pottery using the methods of their ancient ancestors.

She was influenced by many of her family members to continue a long lived family tradition. Julie Gutierrez also had a big impact on her decision to become an artisan.

Madeline has been making pottery since 1989. She specializes in hand coiling traditional Santa Clara but adding her unique contemporary flare.

She gathers the clay from within the grounds of the Santa Clara Pueblo. Then she cleans, mixes, hand coils, shapes, etches, polishes, and fires her pottery outdoors with horse manure.

The designs she chooses to create are those of nature scenes, because of the respect and the love she has for the planet and all that it has to offer.

She is related to the following artists: Effie Garcia (mother) and Madeline Naranjo (grandmother). She signs her pottery as: Madeline E. Naranjo, SCP.
