About The Artist:
Emily Tafoya was, tragically, a young widow left with four small children, without her partner in pottery , as well as life. She had
always helped her husband, Ray, by making the clay and forming their prizewinning pots, but he had been the one to do the
intricate sgrafitto incising, and painting.
Relying on her years of observation and collaboration, she courageously began to do their signature sgrafitto pots from start to
finish, and is now at the same level on her own as she and Ray were together. This is a reason to cheer, for artistic as well as
human reasons.
