Grace Medicine Flower (1938- )

Grace Medicine Flower is a living artist from the Santa Clara Pueblo. She learned her basic pottery technique from her father, Camilio Sunflower Tafoya while she was still a young woman. Grace has continued to produce exquisite incised miniatures of bowls, vases, and wedding vases for over 30 years. Currently she exhibits in the finest art galleries in Santa Fe, Scottsdale, Los Angeles, and other major art cities.

Grace's contributions to the art of Pueblo pottery have been the artistic precision of her traditional designs depicting the culture and symbolism of all Indians of the Southwest. She started producing her intricate designs on black-fired pottery, but she really achieved her finest when she switched to the sienna-colored miniatures.
