Grace Monahan was a contemporary of Ida Redbird, Mary Juan and Vesta Bread, all involved with the pottery revival of the 1930s. Although she wasn't one of the original potters in the 1937 Maricopa Pottery Cooperative, she worked alongside celebrated artists like Ida Redbird, Mary Juan, Mabel Sunn and Alma Lawrence, and today her work has a similar importance. Her designs are distinctive enough so that most of her pieces are instantly recognizable without the signature. Each piece is traditionally hand crafted from native clay with the paddle and anvil method, iron oxide red slip is decorated with black mesquite sap paint, pit fired.
