Mary R. Lucero

Mary R. Lucero is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born into the Jemez Pueblo in 1948. Mary was inspired to learn the art of working with clay by her Grandmother, Magnita Lucero. Magnita introduced Mary to the hills that provided the best clay. Then, Mary gathers other natural pigments from the sacred grounds within the Jemez pueblo. Magnita taught Mary how to mix, shape, paint, and fire pottery the traditional way, outdoors. She began hand coiling her pottery at the age of 14, when she would watch her grandmother make her pottery the traditional way.

Mary specializes in the handmade pueblo styled storytellers, but does not limit her abilities. She also makes animals, nativities, and other clay sculptures. Mary uses natural colors to paint her pottery. Mary signs her pottery as: Mary R. Lucero, Jemez.

Mary is related to the following artists: Carol Gachupin (sister), Mary I. Lucero (cousin), Diane Lucero, and Joyce Lucero (daughters).
