Cavan Gonzales

A leader in the revival of the old art of polychrome pottery at San Idelfonso Pueblo, this artist comes from a long line of distinguished Native American potters starting with his great-great grandmother, the legendary Maria Martinez. Son of noted potter Barbara Gonzales and a great-grandson of Santana & Adam Martinez, Cavan designs and paints his work, as well as doing the potting. He likes to use classic imagery and also his own innovative designs. His pottery has been exhibited at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D. C. and at the New Mexico State Capital, among others.
