Matthew Fragua

Matthew E. Fragua, “Spotted Eagle”, is a full blooded Native American Indian. He was born into the Jemez Pueblo in 1963. He began experimenting with clay at the age of 16, in 1978. His inspiration was his Great Grandmother, Persingula Gachupin. She taught him all the fundamentals of constructing clay sculptures using ancient traditional methods which were passed down from generation to generation.

Matthew specializes in hand making koshare storytellers, horses, figurines and he can hand coil pottery. Matthew digs up his own clay, cleans, mixes, molds, paints, and fires his pottery, the traditional way, outdoors. He uses all natural colors and clays. Matthew signs his pottery as: M. Fragua, Jemez. Matthew is related to the following artists: Marie Romero (aunt), Laura Gachupin (cousin), and the famous Maxine Toya (cousin).
