Susan Folwell is one of the exciting innovators in Pueblo pottery. Her work is native clay and inspired by traditional designs, but she continually experimented with techniques and clays. Susan is the daughter of Jody Folwell and the sister of Polly Rose Folwell. She has won numerous awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Indian Market. In addition, she has been featured in several books, including “NDN,” “Free Spirit,” and others.
Susan has said, “My Earliest recollection I can think of is that my mother gave me a ball of clay. I decided I wanted to make a snake. It was a long flat tube. She said if you want people to be interested in it, it has to have some character. I said I thought it had enough character. She said no, so she bent the tube and made it into an “S,” She pinched the nose. I cried for like an hour as she pinched the nose, and I thought it was now a worm; she swore it was still a snake. In the end, I was thrilled because it sold for $2. I was hooked after that.”
