Juanita Fragua is the 7th of 9 children from the Jemez pueblo. A member of the corn clan, Juanita often uses corn designs on her pottery. Jaunita's pots are painted with soft gray-blues, tans, and chalky whites. She is best known for her melon bowls and wedding vases. Juanitas two daughters, Gledora and B.J. (Betty-Jean) are also sought after for their beautiful pots. We currently have an excellent selection of pottery from the Juanita, Glendora and BJ.
