Ramona Gonzales with her husband, Juan Gonzales and daughter Marie. Photo by T. Harmon Parkhurst, Courtesy Palace of the Governors Photo Archives (NMHM/DCA), 003774.

Ramona Gonzales was one of the early potters, along with Maria Martinez, to help promote the black-on-black pottery of San Ildefonso pueblo. She was the step-mother of Blue Corn & Lorenzo Gonzales and the mother-in-law of Rose Gonzales, whom she taught to make pottery. Her innovative pottery included not only black-on-black ware but also more intricate polychrome and red-on-red painted vessels. Her work is among the most difficult to find, as she signed her pieces for such a short time before her passing in 1934. Her innovative style continues in her descendants such as Tse-Pe Gonzales (1940-2000) and Russell Sanchez.
