Jennifer Tafoya

Jennifer Moquino Jennifer Tafoya (Moquino) is a daughter of Ray and Emily Tafoya. The use of realism in their imagery has revitalized the style of sgraffito pottery originated by Joseph Lonewolf in the 1970s. Jennifer has won numerous awards for her pottery and is featured in books such as "Talking with the Clay," "Crafted to Perfection" and "Breaking the Mold." Jennifer has also been featured in recent magazine articles in "Native Peoples Magazine" and "Southwest Art Magazine" and won "Best of Pottery" for a collaborative jar at the 2013 Heard Indian Market Guild.  She has continued to be an award-winning potter at Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Indian Market.  Jennifer uses the Native American traditional methods, of hand-coiled pottery, then shaping, polishing, and traditionally fired before applying scraffito.  She then paints natural ore colors and slips to her designs.  She collects and processes all of her pottery materials from natural sources.
