About the Artist

(1939-1992) Stella Shutiva was a well-known Acoma pueblo potter, specializing in the corrugated style of prehistoric times. She credited her mother, Jessie Garcia, for the revival of corrugated pottery, which is created when pueblo potters make indentations in the coils with a finger or a thumb. Archeologists have experimented to confirm the superior durability of corrugated wares.

Shutiva once demonstrated her techniques when she studied the Acoma pottery collections at the Smithsonian Institute in 1973.
