Sherry Tafoya

(Born 1956) Sherry Tafoya is the daughter of potter Mida Tafoya, the granddaughter of Christina Naranjo, another noteworthy potter from Santa Clara and the great granddaughter of Sara Fina.

Sherry’s pottery is illustrated on page 233 of the Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery book.

Her carved edges are deliberately sharply formed, yielding a presentation far crisper than the work of many Santa Clara potters without losing the organic nature of the clay.
