Teresita Naranjo

Teresita Naranjo was a daughter of Christina Naranjo, a sister of Mary Cain and the great-aunt to Autumn Borts and Tammy Garcia. Her pottery can be found in the permanent collection of museums nationwide including The National Museum of the American Indian, the Denver Art Museum and the Heard. Teresita Naranjo holds a place of historic significance in Santa Clara pottery, as she is considered the first to carve outside the linear band designs for her imagery. Her carving was always deep and crisp, and the designs seem to flow gracefully around the surface.

Naranjo, Christina & Teresita Naranjo – Jar with Carved Avanyu (1960’s))

This is a striking but unusual collaborative piece by Christina Naranjo and her daughter, Teresita Naranjo.  The jar was made by Christina and is one of her classic round shapes with the slight neck.  It was carved by Teresita with a very deep style of carving.  The jar has a water serpent (avanyu) encircling the piece. Note that there is Teresita’s signature style of negative space carving with the clouds descending from the rim.  The carving on the horn of the avanyu is especially deep, crips and very thin!  The jar is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There are some minor scratches on the surface.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Teresita + Christina”.  It is interesting that in over 20 years, I have had several pieces which were signed by both Christina and Mary Cain (another daughter) but this is the first one I have had by Christina and Teresita.  It’s nice to see in a collaborative piece that their individuality in shape (Christina) and carving (Terestia) are so distinctive.  Christina Naranjo was a sister of Margaret Tafoya and Camilio Tafoya, as well as the matriarch of the family of potters including Teresita Naranjo and Tammy Garcia.
