Frederica Antonio was born into Acoma Pueblo in 1968. She was inspired to continue the longstanding family tradition of making pottery by her mother-in-law, Mildred Antonio. Mildred taught Frederica all the fundamentals of pottery-making, and Frederica began making pottery at the age of 18. Frederica specializes in contemporary hand-coiled pottery with hand-painted intricate eye-dazzling designs. She fashions a brush from the stems of a yucca plant to paint her pottery, and uses different colors to give a unique three-dimensional effect.
