Helen Andrews was a mother and full-time guidance counselor in 1974 when she decided to open a Native American pottery gallery in Old Town. She didnít give up those first two pursuits; just added a third. After a full day at school, Helen would drive to the Pueblos and make her rounds. When she came home, the family would ooh and aah over her purchases, then get ready for the next day. The family interest in Pueblo pottery began years earlier, and is epitomized by the small pot by Blue Corn of San Ildefonso pictured below. Helen and her children, Bob, Susan and Joey, took a trip to the Grand Canyon in 1959. Ten-year-old Robert spent almost all his allowance to buy that pot. It remains in his collection today. Helen developed deep friendships among the potters she met: Maria Martinez; Margaret Tafoya; Fannie and Priscilla Nampeyo; Joseph Lonewolf; Lucy Lewis; Dora and Tse Pe. Her friendships among her customers and former students stretched from coast to coast. We all miss her dearly!
