Stella is the daughter of famed Santa Clara potter Teresita Naranjo who passed away in early 2000. Stella's pottery is very much influenced by that of her mother with the exception that Stella makes only black ware and works on a somewhat smaller scale than did Teresita. One could say that Stella makes quintessential Santa Clara black ware and receive little or no argument. Stella has two potting daughters who share in her style: Denise Chavarria and Sunday Chavarria.
