SU­SAN FOL­WELL (SANTA CLARA)

Native American Art - - GUIDE TO MARKET -

Su­san Fol­well comes from a long line of pot­ters with her mother, grand­mother, great­grand­mother, cousins, aunts and un­cles all hav­ing worked in clay. “I was very lucky to come from an ex­tended fam­ily of in­no­va­tors, so not only do I have Pue­blo tra­di­tions with me, I learned by ex­am­ple to ex­per­i­ment and push the bound­aries of my cre­ativ­ity,” Fol­well says.

That cre­ativ­ity shines through in some of her most re­cent pots that were in­spired by a move to Taos, New Mex­ico, with her hus­band, Dav­i­son, a few years ago. “I’ve been ex­plor­ing and in­ter­pret­ing the works of Wal­ter Ufer, Buck Dun­ton and other mem­bers of the Taos So­ci­ety of Artists,” she ex­plains, adding that these artists were in­spired by the land­scape, light and peo­ple of north­ern New Mex­ico.
