Artist Signature - Lolita Concho, Acoma Pueblo PotterAcoma Pueblo artist Lolita Concho was a prize-winning potter who found time to teach the techniques of pottery making to her daughter-in-law, Dorothy Torivio.

Lolita Torivio Concho (1914-2000) spent her life at the pueblo making pottery for collectors and museums. She was an outstanding potter and one of the few who could make large jars. We commissioned her to make large jars like the ones in R. C. Gorman's lithographs "Water Carrier" and "Acoma" in the early 1980s. The results were breathtaking.
