Mary Lucero

Mary R. Lucero was born into the Jemez Pueblo in 1948. Mary was inspired to learn the art of working with clay by her grandmother, Magnita Lucero. Magnita introduced Mary to the hills that provided the best clay. She taught Mary to mix, shape, paint and fire pottery the traditional way. At the age of 14, Mary began coiling her pottery. Mary specializes in the handmade pueblo styled storytellers but does not limit her abilities. She also makes animals, nativities and other clay sculptures. Mary uses natural colors to paint her pottery. She signs her pottery: Mary R. Lucero. Mary is related to Carol Gachupin (sister), Mary I. Lucero (cousin), Diane Lucero and Joyce Lucero (daughters).
