Rosalie was originally from Picuris Pueblo and married Joe Aguilar in 1922. Joe Aguilar (1898-1965) was the son of noted potter Susana Aguilar. Together they had 11 children. She learned to make pottery from her mother-in-law Susana and Joe painted most of their pieces of pottery. In the 1930's Rosalie was among the first, along with Rose Gonzales (1909-1989) to begin carving pottery.
