Beatrice Riley

Beatrice Riley was born into the Jemez Pueblo in 1951. She is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was inspired to learn the art of pottery making, and continue the family tradition of working with clay, from several members of her clan. She was also economically motivated to continue the tradition. She has been working with clay since 1962.

Beatrice specializes in handmade pueblo style storytellers, nativities, ornaments, and friendship pots. She digs up her clay from a sacred ground within the Jemez Pueblo. Beatrice cleans, mixes, hand shapes, molds, paints, and fires her clay figures,the traditional way, outdoors. She uses all natural materials and natural paints on her pottery sculptures. Beatrice signs her pottery as: B. Loretto, Jemez.

Beatrice is related to the following artists: Angie Loretto-Riley, and Lucy Loretto (sisters)
