About the Artist

(Born 1931) Maria D. Vigil, an artist with Santa Clara and Pojoaque lineage active making pottery since 1955, comes from a family of potters. "Minnie" has been winning awards at Indian Market in Santa Fe as early as 1975.

Her favorite designs are rain clouds, rainbows, sky bands, clouds and bear paws. Her polished red globular forms are often decorated with these multi-colored painted designs.

Her work is illustrated in nearly every book describing Santa Clara potters.  In 1985 her pottery was exhibited in New York City at the Sid Deusch Gallery along with pottery by Margaret Tafoya.
