About The Artist:
Autumn Borts-Medlock is from a talented family of innovative Santa Clara potters. She is a daughter of Linda Cain, sister of
Tammy Garcia, granddaughter of Mary Cain and great-granddaughter of Christina Naranjo. Form is always one of the keys to her
pottery. This box is one of the few she made, as they are technically difficult to create and keep from cracking during both the
drying and firing stages. On the long sides of the box are a deeply carved bird and bear. On the short ends are butterflies. The lid
is fully polished and fits perfectly onto the top of the box. The balance of polished and matte surfaces are enhanced with the use of
micaceous clay in several of the sections. Autumn has won numerous awards for her pottery and continues to be one of the
important new generation of innovators in contemporary Pueblo pottery!
