Noreen Simplicio

This prize-winning potter says, “My future as a potter began when I was a young child playing with mud…making mud pies and mud pots. My talents emerged as I had my first lesson in pottery-making at Zuni High School.” After studying with several famous potters, she has been showing her work and winning prizes since 1988.
Noreen describes her work as follows: “My pottery forms are characterized by distinctive designs that combine traditional Zuni pottery symbols with contemporary design elements of my own creation. I make great use of fine lines, birds and animal symbols. The scenes depicted on my work often stress the universal harmony that should be maintained among all living things.”
