Laura Gachupin was born into the Jemez Pueblo in the late 1950′s. Laura was inspired to learn the art of working with clay from her mother, Marie Romero. Marie taught Laura the fundamentals of making pottery using methods passed down from generation to generation. Laura has been working with clay for more than 25 years. She attended the Institute of Amerian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she gained even a greater history, respect and knowledge of making Native American pottery. Laura also gained an interest for some contemporary styles during that time. Laura is known for pottery of various shapes and sizes as well as some clay sculptures. Some of her designs include owl jars, kiva bowls and geometrics. One of her most popular designs is the melon bowl with an incredible stone polish usually buff in color.
