Pottery by Elizabeth Medina

Elizabeth Medina, “Sepia”, was born in 1956 into the Jemez Pueblo. She married into the Zia Pueblo. She was inspired by her Mother-in-Law, Sofia Medina, to learn the art of working with clay. Elizabeth observed Sofia with much enthusiasm in hopes of achieving the same skills. It appears from what Elizabeth has accomplished, that she has achieved her goal.
