Juanita Cordero Arquero, Cochiti Pueblo Pottery
+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Cochiti Pueblo artist Juanita Arquero encouraged her sister-in-law Helen Cordero Cordero and Felicita Eustace to make pottery as a means of earning extra income. After making their pottery, they would sell their pottery wares in Albuquerque's Old Town and at Pueblo feast day activities. The family members later taught pottery classes together at a school in Bernalillo, New Mexico.
Juanita Cordero Arquero (1906-?) stated to have been actively making pottery only from the 1960s to the 1980s. She was a sister of Cochiti Pueblo drum maker Fred Cordero, the husband of Helen Cordero.
