Juanita C. Fragua is the matriarch of a family of well-known artists, and started making pottery in the early 1950s.
In the early 1970s, Juanita researched historic pottery of the Southwest. Experimenting with minerals and plants for pigments, she developed her own style and designs, inspired by her family's corn clan affiliation.
Juanita is a valued member of her community, and leads in keeping many of the essential traditions alive for her pueblo.
