Paul Naranjo (1957-2002) signaturePaul Naranjo of Santa Clara Pueblo is known for his brownware pottery with sgraffito designs.  It seems that there are some misunderstandings about Paul’s birth and death dates. Some websites show those to be 1960-1993, 1950-1993, and 1957-2002.  The latter dates were obtained from an online obituary and are the dates we have selected to use. Names of relations mentioned in the obituary were confirmed with a Santa Clara native as being related to Paul, so we are confident that he passed away in 2002 as indicated.

Paul received awards at Santa Fe Indian Market every year from 1988 to 1992, including one Best of Division award.
