Renowned Native American master potter Nathan Youngblood learned to make pottery from his grandmother Margaret Tafoya, the matriarch of Santa Clara Pueblo potters; and his grandfather Alcario Tafoya. Now considered one of the finest potters working today, Youngblood has said, “I don’t make pots, I’m just involved in the process.” During this rare opportunity, Youngblood discusses his work, his technique, and the long legacy of Southwestern Native American pottery. Youngblood’s ceramics are on view in the exhibition Pueblo Dynasties: Master Potters from Matriarchs to Contemporaries ; the artist also served as an advisor to the show. Attendees to his talk will be allowed a sneak peak of the exhibition before it opens to the public.
