Emma Lewis - Acoma Pueblo  

Emma Lewis-Mitchell was born in 1931 into the Acoma Sky City Pueblo. She is the daughter of the world renowned, Lucy M. Lewis. Emma has been around great pottery artists her whole life, although, her greatest inspiration came down from her mother, Lucy. Emma is a self taught artisan and learned the ancient traditional methods of working with clay by carefully observing Lucy in her pottery constructions. Emma chose to continue the long lived tradition of working with pottery and using the ancient methods. Emma gathers her own natural pigments and clays from the clay pits within the Acoma Pueblo. She cleans her clay for impurities by hand, then, she hand mixes, hand coils, hand paints, and uses a traditional firing method to add the finishing touch to her wonderful masterpieces which mother earth has blessed her.
