Sadie Adams

Sadie Adams was famous for the variety of her pottery shapes along with her intricately painted designs. Each piece was coil built, painted with bee-weed and native clay slips and traditionally fired. She was a cousin of potters Lena Charlie, Irene Shupla, Patty Maho and a niece of Paqua Naha (Frogwoman). She also taught her daughter Lorna Lomakema to make pottery. Her Tewa name meant “Flower Woman/Girl” and so each piece is signed with her hallmark on the back, a flower.
