Jody Folwell

Jody Folwell has long been one of the essential innovators in Pueblo pottery.  She is the daughter of Rose Naranjo and the mother of potters Polly Rose Folwell and Susan Folwell.  Her pottery is displayed in museums around the country, and her work is featured in numerous books, including “The Art of Clay” and “Legacy of Generations.” Her revolutionary work of the 1970s changed the surface of Santa Clara pottery with her distinctive firings, use of various clay slips, and utilizing non-traditional design elements.  Creative patina and a wide variety of subject matter in her designs follow elements of traditional Pueblo subjects and reach out to current events of the world.  Today, Jody continues to evolve in her art, and each piece brings together different aspects of her long history of making pottery.
