Mildred Antonio

Mildred Antonio, member of the Eagle Clan, is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born into the Acoma Pueblo in 1937. She was inspired to learn the art of working with clay at the age of 15. Mildred watched her aunt, Marie Torivio, construct her pottery and this sparked an interest in her. Marie taught her the fundamentals of working with clay using ancient traditional methods. Mildred has also been to several art shows to view the art of other pottery artists and gather some ideas for her own work.
