Terasita Martinez

San Ildefonso Pueblo Artist
Mother: Pena, Isabel
Father: Martinez, Pasqual
Sibling: Martinez, Petronella

Terasita was a wonderful potter, helping her mother Isabel Pena in her early years. She married Juan Jose Montoya on 11/20/1933. They have three children, one how died three days after being born. She possible died delivering their fourth child, who also passed away at delivery.

Many of Isabel Pena's carved design were done by Terasita, who used an avenue style similar to Santa Clara Pueblo's style.

Sadly she passed away at 26 years old. She was one of the better artists at the San Ildefonso Pueblo - That had very little fanfare and is virtually unknown to the modern art enthusiast.
