Authentic Zia Hand Coiled PotArtist: Elizabeth Medina Size: 4 7/8" x 5 1/2"
Elizabeth Medina, “Sepia”, was born in 1956 into the Jemez
Pueblo. She married into the Zia Pueblo. She was inspired by her Mother-in-Law,
Sofia Medina, to learn the art of working with clay. Elizabeth observed Sofia
with much enthusiasm in hopes of achieving the same skills. It appears from
what Elizabeth has accomplished, that she has achieved her goal.
in the handmade traditional Zia pottery with traditional symbols and birds. She
digs up her own clay, cleans, mixes, coils, shapes, fires, and paints her
pottery the traditional way, with natural colors. Elizabeth signs her pottery
as: Elizabeth Medina, Zia. Elizabeth is related to the following artists:
Marcellus Medina (husband), Lois Medina (sister-in-law), and Sofia Medina
