Darlene is a great-great granddaughter of noted potter Nampeyo of Hano as a descendant through her eldest daughter Annie and Annie’s eldest daughter Rachel. Her mother is Ruth James, a sister of Dextra Quotskuyva, Eleanor Lucas and Priscilla Namingha. Darlene learned to make pottery from her aunts, Dextra and Priscilla. The designs are all painted with bee-weed (black) and then traditionally fired to create the blushes on the clay surface Darlene’s pottery can be found in museums throughout the Southwest. She has also won ribbons at events such as Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Museum Market.
