B.J. Fragua
Jemez Pueblo

North Star

4 3/4" H x 4 3/4" D


Betty Jean Fragua (signs B.J. Fragua) is of the Jemez Corn Clan and has been active as a potter since 1980 working with traditional polychrome and stone polished sgraffito redware and matte tanware bowls. She was taught by her famous mother, Juanita Fragua, whose work is highly valued and widely collected.

These pots have fantastic artwork - precise and clean, plus a highly polished surface. The art work is extremely time intensive with some graphics being composed from hundreds of tiny paint strokes. B.J.'s work is also widely collected and, like her mother, she is able to command a fair value price commensurate with her talent and years of experience.

Beginning in 1984, Betty Jean has exhibited and won numerous awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Inter-tribal Indian Ceremonial, and the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Arts & Crafts Fair.

Her work is included in Dr. Gregory Schaaf’s Southern Pueblo Pottery; Hayes & Blom’s Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni; Contemporary Pueblo & Navajo Pottery by Berger & Schiffer; and Lillian Peaster’s Families in Pueblo Pottery.
