Luce Artist Biography

Louis Naranjo grew up in the pueblo of Cochiti, a small village in New Mexico where he learned how to make pottery from his mother. He worked with his wife, Virginia, creating figures and animals while they sat around their dining room table. They used clay from the hills around their home and applied clay slips and beeweed juice to create different colors. (Charles Rosenak, "The Storytellers," Indians of New Mexico, 1990)
