About Barbara Gonzales

Barbara Pino Gonzales of San Ildefonso was born in 1947. She is the oldest great-granddaughter of Maria Martinez. who gave Barbara the name Tahn-Moo-Whe (Sunbeam).

Barbara learned the traditional ways to create black-on-black pottery from Maria as well as her maternal grandparents, Santana and Adam Martinez, along with Popovi Da.

Barbara began experimenting with duotone pots with inlaid turquoise. She has become known for her intricately incised black. red and polychrome bowls with her "good luck" spider motif.

Barbara Pino Gonzales is listed in the book Pueblo Indian Pottery by Gregory Schaaf.
