Linda learned the art of making Pueblo pottery from her parents, Lee and Betty Tafoya, and she is the granddaughter of Margaret Tafoya. Her early pottery was signed “Linda Tafoya-Oyenque” when she lived in San Juan Pueblo. She lives near Santa Clara Pueblo and signs her pottery, “Linda Tafoya-Sanchez.” She has won numerous awards for pottery at Santa Fe Indian Market and Heard Indian Market. She was also featured on the front cover of New Mexico Magazine in August 2006 and a featured artist in the 2011 Santa Fe Indian Market Magazine. Linda’s polish and deep carving in her mellon bowl design brings each piece an excellent complete polish reflection. In addition, she often uses a dimension of micaceous clay in her matte finish to complete the character of each work. We are pleased to work with Linda and keep a good selection of her works online.
