    Geraldine Lovato

    Geraldine’s given name in Keres is Tsah-shrti-mah (the stone used for grinding corn). She was born Geraldine Lucero, a member of the Corn Clan at San Felipe Pueblo. She gathers her own clay from the reservation, hand coils her pottery, and paints with natural pigments in the traditional way. She has been making pottery since 1993. She credits her husband, Diego Lovato, a potter from Santo Domingo Pueblo, with teaching her the traditional way to hand coil, sand, and polish her pottery.

    Geraldine is an award-winning artist and her work has been shown at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, and at various shops in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her work can also be found in private collections from Canada to China. Geraldine hopes that the future of pottery making at San Felipe will be “recognized for the authenticity of the materials used.” She also hopes for “more women potters and a passion for our people to have the desire to be creative and learn to express themselves.”
