Jennie Trammel was the third child of noted potter Margaret Tafoya. She learned to make pottery from her mother and also from her grandmother, Sara Fina Tafoya. Over the years she did not make a lot of pottery as she lived a very private life and was virtually never involved in markets or gallery shows. However, she created stunning pottery with classic shapes and designs which were distinctive to her work. Each piece was coil built and it was the carving, with the rounded edges, which was a visual key to her work. Jennie's work can be found in books such as "Born of Fire" and also in museums around the country. As she made such a small amount during her career it is always difficult to find her work.
