Arquero, Martha – Frog Clay Figure
Martha Arquero (b. 1944) learned to make pottery from her mother, Damacia Cordero. Her sisters, Josephine Arquero, and Maria Laweka, are also well known for their traditional pottery. This is one of her smaller figures. It is a classic style frog with a fly on its tongue. Cochiti is located on the river, and so frogs are often seen in their figurative pottery. The frog is signed on the bottom with wild-spinach on the clay. It was traditionally fired and in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
