“Working with clay brings back memories of my extended families, and other community members who are all gone now. What they taught me while working with clay extends into many facets of Tesuque culture and lifeways. As we worked with clay We also shared information about the past, not just how to work with clay but also the oral histories, cooking and the value of our traditions. So today in the same way, I share my knowledge, stories and folklore with who ever comes to sit with me while I work. I feel it is in this time-honored way that I carry and pass on the traditions of my people. Through the practice of clay art I have been able to recreate some of the old kiva pots that have been broken.” – Ignacia Duran
