Dolores Curran  Artworks >>

Dolores Curran is the daughter of noted potter Usulita Naranjo. She began making pottery at a very early age. Dolores is originally from Santa Clara, but has moved to Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo. Dolores has long been known for her miniatures in buff on red style of pottery. Dolores has also created a distinctive style inspired by San Juan Pueblo pottery. These pieces reflect the incised pottery of her husband, Alvin Curran. Each piece is incised with designs which are then slipped with various clays or stone polished and then traditionally fired outdoors. She has also created black fired vessels in this same style, which are often called, “Poly-tonal” for the variations of gray and black on the piece. Each of Dolores’s pieces are unique.
