Shirley Tafoya began making pottery full-time in 1971-2. She decided to concentrate on making miniature versions of the large vessels her mother, Margaret Tafoya, was know to make. Shirley would work to make them as small, thin walled and elegant in form as possible. The picture of Shirley is from one of our Gallery Shows with Shirley and LuAnn in 2001. You can read more about Shirley in the book, "Born of Fire".

Tafoya, Shirley – Bowl with Rain Cloud Design

Shirley Tafoya was well known for her miniature pottery.  Each piece of Shirley’s miniature pottery is coil built, stone polished and traditionally fired. This is a larger piece of her pottery and it is deeply carved with a lightning and cloud pattern on one side and  prayer feathers on the opposite side.  The polish on the surface is stunning with a glassy appearance.  The design is thoughtful, as was much of Shirley’s pottery, connecting the prayer feathers with the prayers for rain.  The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Shirley Cactus Blossom Tafoya”.
