Maria Martinez (1887–1980) and Popovi Da (1922–1971)— San Ildefonso Pueblo

Martinez began potting with her son Popovi Da in the mid-1950s and continued working with him until his untimely death. He was a brilliant ceramicist creating new designs and was the first to etch designs, and add turquoise stones and heshi or shell beads to a pot’s surface.
