Nathan Youngblood
Nathan Youngblood is a sixth generation potter who learned to make pottery by watching his mother and grandparents who taught him, “The clay is a gift; it is a privilege that the Clay Mother gives us, and we are very fortunate.  You can’t be good if you just play with it.  You have to totally commit yourself.” He continually works to redefine what makes Pueblo pottery unique with technical superiority, innovative shapes and traditional designs combined with an original contemporary presentation. Youngblood adheres to all the traditional aspects of completing piece, carefully following each step taught him by his ancestors.
