Jemez Pueblo artist Marie G Romero has made pottery of the finest quality for over 50 years. She would sign her pottery creations as "Marie G Romero, Jemez" and the corn stalk symbol of Marie's corn clan.
A member of the Corn Clan of Jemez Pueblo Marie Gachupin Romero (1927-2007) learned the traditional techniques of pottery making from her mother, noted Jemez pottery, Persingular Gachupin. Clay was gathered from the earth locally in the Pueblo, cleaned of impurities, constructed by hand and fired in an outdoor wood fire.
