Seferina Ortiz is one of New Mexico’s well-known Native American potters. She lived and worked at Cochiti Pueblo and she, along with Helen Cordero and other potters, she became known for her storytellers and other figures. Her figures were more finely made than some, with refined shaping and carefully observed and skillfully painted details seen here in the patterning on the woman’s dress, delicate collar, high moccasins, detailed sash and each child’s distinctive painted outfit. She also produced eccentrics, whimsical pieces, including skunks, frogs, owls and other figures.
