About Martha Appleleaf Fender
Born in 1950, Martha Appleleaf learned her craft from her mother, Carmelita Vigil Dunlap. She would also watch her aunts,
Maria Martinez and Desideria Montoya. During her early years she experimented, making green on red pots like her uncle, Tsa-Pe, and cream on red
pots like her other uncle, Albert Vigil. One of her favorite designs is feathers in a row.
