Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo artist signature of Anacita Salazar (b. 1931) Than PoviThose who appreciate the beauty of unadorned Ohkay Owingeh pottery will find much to admire about the works made by Anacita Salazar, whose Tewa name is Than Povi. Adobe Gallery is unable to find much in the way of biographical information on Anacita Salazar (b. 1931) so we are not sure if she is still alive and working. Salazar is the daughter of Geronima Abeyta and the mother of Tom Povi. The excellent work that went into the creation of this jar suggests that Salazar was as talented as any of her better-known contemporaries.
