Caroline Carpio

A talented potter from Isleta Pueblo, south of Albuquerque, New Mexico. She was reportedly one vote shy of being voted Indian Artist of the Year, a few years ago. This is a peer-voted honor, which says a great deal about her work and her personality.
Her quiet gentility is reflected in her work: gently rounded forms, subtle contrasts, softly gleaming polish, and restrained decoration. A deep sense of serenity and peace is present in everything she creates. Like many other artists, she has begun to transform some work into bronzes. Notable among her many prizes and honors, was being chosen as one of the two potters to represent the United States in a workshop/residency program, in Japan, recently.

Caroline says her means of paying homage to the Creator “is to create something beautiful that comes from Mother Earth, from which we all came.”
