Jody Folwell, Santa Clara Pueblo Potter
+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Santa Clara Pueblo artist Jody Folwell is recognized as one of today's finest modernist pueblo potters. She was selected in 1987 as a top contemporary Indian artist by the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles for a major exhibit that included only seven other Native American artists.
The Rose Naranjo dynasty produced several very talented artists, among them her daughter Jody Folwell (1942- ) and her two granddaughters Polly Rose Folwell and Susan Folwell. Most Santa Clara Pueblo potters have continued producing black and red pottery in the traditional fashion, but Jody Folwell broke away from that routine and branched out into a more modern self-expression in her work.
