c. 1975 blackware carved bear & buffalo pottery bowl with turquoise by Dora Tse Pe (San Ildefonso)
Dora Tse-Pe is of the Tewa tribe and was born at Zia Pueblo in 1939. She moved to San Ildefonso Pueblo when she married, already knowing how to make pottery, but her mature style was influenced by her mother-in-law Rose Gonzalez, who she watched make red and black pots. She learned to polish the clay at San Ildefonso as well. Dora says she was also inspired by Maria Martinez's son Popovi Da and his son Tony Da.
