About the Artist
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.
Frederica developed an interest in pottery-making while observing Mildred hand-coil and paint her pottery. 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.
Frederica creates a variety of sizes and styles, and every one of her pots is a one-of-a-kind work of art with no two pieces alike.
All of the participating artists receive royalties for each mug sold, with proceeds also supporting the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico.
