If you want to laugh your butt off, spend a few moments with contemporary Jemez Pueblo potter Glendora Fragua. Her sense of humor is on par with her talent, and her style is constantly morphing. And people have been taking notice. As a matter of fact, many Mata Ortiz potters have been trying to reproduce her floral and insect designs, but they don’t compare to the real thing.
For the last two years, I have wanted to interview Glendora about her pottery, but for one reason or another it hasn’t happened until now. I’m thrilled that she finally had the time during a lull at her 2011 SWAIA Indian Market booth to talk briefly to me.
