Juana Leno Pottery - C4080BWhen I was preparing to open the gallery in Albuquerque Old Town, which opened on 9 September 1978, I was making frequent trips to the New Mexico pueblos to purchase pottery because that was the main feature in those days.  Juana Leno was one of my very favorite potters at that time and I visited her and purchased pottery from her on a frequent basis. I don't recall that she ever came into town to sell to me. I always went to Acoma Pueblo to purchase from her. This jar is typical of the very fine work she produced.  She was an excellent potter and painter of designs.
