debra duwyenieDebra Duwyenie

debra duwyenie Debra Duwyenie is renown for her highly polished incised pottery. At times she also works on pieces with her husband, noted potter Preston Duwyenie. On these pieces, he makes the piece of pottery, and she does the polishing and incised designs. Debra is a granddaughter of Petra Gutierrez and the niece of noted potters Gloria Garcia (Goldenrod) & Lois Gutierrez. Debra also made pieces with Harvey Chavarria (1943-1991), and they were signed "Debra + Harvey." It is significant that Debra does all of her sgraffito work into the clay before they are fired, which adds to the difficulty of her work. Debra has won numerous awards for her pottery at events such as Santa Fe Indian Market.  Debra uses the traditional methods of hand-coil, stone polish, paint, open fire, and hand sgraffito designs.  We are pleased to carry a selection of her work at both our Scottsdale and Santa Fe locations.
