Thomas G. Natseway was born on April 19, 1953 into the Laguna Pueblo. He was taught the fundamentals of constructing handmade pottery using the ancient traditional hand coiling method by his relatives and his wife, Charmae, from the Acoma Pueblo. He met his wife when he interviewed her early in his journalistic career.

Thomas specializes in hand coiled and hand painted miniature pottery. His pieces are difficult to construct because a finger usually doesn’t fit inside the lip of the vessels. He hand paints each piece carefully and fires his pottery in a kiln. He signs his pottery: Thomas Natseway. He is related to Charmae Natseway (wife), and Peter and Betty Natseway (parents).
