Geraldine Sandia is a member of a large extended family of Jemez potters. She and her sisters, Carol Loretto, Mary Helen Loretto and Shirley Chinana, work in a highly polished and polychromatic style that is both beautiful and affordable.
Geraldine is probably the best known of the sisters as she enjoys doing shows and has won numerous awards. She is also the only sister making wedding vases as well as several other more unusual shapes. Her daughters, Natalie, Debbie and Rachael, also pot in the style of their mother.
