Delores Aragon Juanico

Daughter of Marie S. Juanico, granddaughter of Dolores Sanchez, both noted potters, she is noted especially for her exceptionally fine miniatures. Her styles continue the tradition of Acoma Pueblo fine-line, and other, traditional patterns.
She is quoted as saying,”The old techniques of my ancestors have motivated me even more so to become a part of this tradition. By doing so, I too try different techniques. My grandmother and those before her were strong in keeping the spirit and tradition alive…. It makes me feel good – a part of our ancestors – to do it in the traditional way.””
