Toni Roller (1935- )
+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Toni Roller is among the family of potters from Santa Clara Pueblo that has excelled at the craft of pottery making and she has won too many awards to even consider listing here. She is the granddaughter of famous matriarch Sara Fina Tafoya, and the daughter of Margaret Tafoya. Her sisters were also potters: Virginia Ebelacker, Jennie Trammell, Mela Youngblood, Luann Tafoya, Mary Esther Archuleta, and Shirley Tafoya. She also had two brothers: Lee (married to Betty who potted together) and Meldon (I have not heard of this brother making any pottery).
Toni has excelled at pottery making since around 1960 and continues to produce today. She is a perfectionist and her work is perfect evidence of this.
