Maria Martinez Pottery Johnny with his mother Sunset displaying some of his pottery. Johnny, a Tewa Native American Indian from San Ildefonso Pueblo, come from a family of traditional pottery makers. His Great-Grandparents were none other then - Julian and Maria Martinez. Johnny is carrying on their pottery making of black-on-black, along with his Grandparents, the late Adam Martinez and Santana Martinez. Johnny stated, 'I am looking forward to being a great potter too.

Their designs are unique, using various designs that are part of the Pueblo Style. I am grateful for taking the vocational education program in traditional Tewa pottery ware.' Evelyn Naranjo has been his main instructor and is an excellent teacher.

Johnny is planning to continue making pottery for a long time to come. Carrying on this tradition is very important to his family, and himself. 'Special remembrance to my Great Grandparents, Julian and Maria Martinez will keep me highly motivated.'
