Lonewolf, Joseph (1932-2014)

Joseph Lonewolf  (1932-2014)

joseph lonewolf Joseph Lonewolf is a son of noted potters Camilio and Agapita Tafoya, and the brother of Grace Medicine Flower. Beginning in the early 1970's, Joseph revolutionized the world of Santa Clara pottery by incorporating his sgraffito (lightly etching the surface of the clay) and incised (more deeply cut into the clay) designs in his work. When Joseph and his family gather clay, they do it with the utmost respect. Before the clay can be taken from Mother Earth, they must say a prayer asking to take the clay and tell the clay mother that they are going to take her and make her into a beautiful pot. The clay is brought home, and water is added to turn the clay to a liquid form known as slip. The slip is then strained to take out any rocks or debris, and then the clay can be dried kneaded and used. Joseph was awarded numerous awards throughout his career, and his work can be found in museums worldwide. He has been featured in numerous books including "The Art of Clay" and has received the prestigious New Mexico Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts in 2009 and the SWAIA Lifetime Achievement Award.
