Mary Louise Eteeyan

Mary Louise Eteeyan is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born into the Jemez Pueblo in 1942. She was inspired to learn the art of pottery making, by observing several of her friends hand coil their pottery. She began experimenting with pottery making in 1978 at the age of 34.

Mary Louise specializes in the handmade Jemez style butterfly bowls with lids. She also hand coils wedding vases and various shapes of pottery. Mary gathers her own clay from the grounds within the Pueblo. Then, she soaks the clay, grinds, sifts, cleans, mixes, hand coils, shapes, hand paints, and fires her pottery the traditional way, outdoors. Mary Louise uses all natural pigments to construct her pottery. Her coiling and painting skills are among one of the most precise around today. Mary signs her pottery as: Mary Louise Eteeyan, Jemez.

Mary is related to the following artists: Anna Marie Sendo (mother) and Kimberly Eteeyan (daughter).
