Joseph Lonewolf
Engraved pottery miniatures.
Joseph Lonewolf elevated the ancient technique of incised pottery to an art form, and started a new tradition in Santa Clara pottery, creating fragile cameo-like pieces that writers and critics called “pottery jewels.” His fine precise sgraffito and delicate painting with natural clay slips took the art of pottery-making to a realm never seen before or since. These tiny masterpieces often tell a story, and Lonewolf sometimes includes narrative cards to relate the tales and explain his many symbols. In addition to countless gallery shows, Lonewolf has been honored with exhibitions at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Wheelwright Museum in Santa Fe, and the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis. All three museums hold his works in their permanent collections.

In September of 2009, Joseph Lonewolf received the New Mexico Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts for Pottery.
