Martha Arquero

Born: 1944, USA, New Mexico, Cochiti

Ceramicist. Daughter of the well-known potter Damacia Cordero (1905-1989), Arquero was born into a family tradition of clay sculpting and was taught in this regard by her mother. She specialises in handmade traditional Cochiti figures and is well known for her ‘frog storytellers’. The figures are coloured and decorated using natural pigments derived from local vegetables and minerals.
