Naranjo, Teresita (1919-1999)

Teresita Naranjo

Teresita Naranjo was a daughter of Christina Naranjo, a sister of Mary Cain and the great-aunt to Autumn Borts and Tammy Garcia. Her pottery can be found in the permanent collection of museums nationwide including The National Museum of the American Indian, the Denver Art Museum and the Heard. Teresita Naranjo holds a place of historic significance in Santa Clara pottery, as she is considered the first to carve outside the linear band designs for her imagery. Her carving was always deep and crisp, and the designs seem to flow gracefully around the surface.
