  • Frederica Antonio was born in 1968 in Acoma Pueblo. She was inspired to continue the long family pottery tradition by her mother-in-law, Mildred Antonio. Frederica developed an interest in pottery-making while observing Mildred hand-coil and paint her own work.When she began making her own pottery at the age of 18, Mildred taught Frederica the fundamentals.

    Frederica now specializes in contemporary hand-coiled pottery with intricate hand-painted designs. Every piece is hand-coiled in a distinct form, rendering each one unique. For painting, she fashions her own brushes from the stems of a yucca plant and uses various colors to give designs a unique three-dimensional effect.
