Judy Toya was born into the Water Clan at Jemez Pueblo and began making pottery in 1972. She comes from a line of potters, learning from her mother, Mary E. Tafoya. Judy uses all-natural materials, digging the clay from the hills around the Jemez Pueblo, using natural slips and firing her pottery traditionally outdoors. She specializes in storytellers and is known for her love of designing the children in clay. Judy has won many awards for her work and loves meeting artists and people from all over the world at shows she participates in. Her storytellers have become a favorite of collectors.
