About Vangie Suina
Born in 1959 into the Cochiti pueblo, Vangie Suina has been making pottery since the age of 22. Her mother, Louise Suina,
encouraged her to develop her own style and taught her the traditional techniques. Over the years, Vangie had developed her own touches, making
donkey, turtle, and moccasin storytellers, and adding items like books and baseball bats.
