Artist Spotlight: Elizabeth and Marcellus Medina

Elizabeth Medina, whose maiden name was Elizabeth Toya, could possibly be listed as a potter from Jemez Pueblo, because that is where she was born and raised.  She married Marcellus Medina of Zia Pueblo in 1978, and moved to Zia Pueblo.  When she moved to her husband’s pueblo, she abandoned her previous style of Jemez pottery, and received permission from Zia Elders to make pottery in the Zia style.

Her new mother-in-law, Sofia Medina, is credited with teaching her the proper processes of making Zia pottery.   Because she has been at Zia Pueblo and has made pottery in the Zia style most of her adult life, she is referenced as a Zia potter. Born in a family of Zia potters in 1954, Marcellus is a self-taught painter and these days, Elizabeth often makes the pot while Marcellus paints the design.
