Delores Lewis Garcia and Emma Lewis Mitchell are the daughters of renowned Acoma pueblo potter Lucy M. Lewis, from whom they learned their craft. The sisters work together and are committed to producing and teaching traditional, hand-built pottery. They retain authentic Acoma patterns and techniques and gather their own natural pigments and clays from the pueblo.
