Linda Lucero Fragua was born to Joe and Rebecca Fragua at Jemez Pueblo in November of 1954. Linda grew up learning to make pottery the Jemez traditional way alongside her mother. She's been making pottery for about 40 years now and has passed what she's learned on to her daughter Chrislyn.
Linda has participated in shows at The Fort in Morrison, Colorado, the Heard Museum in Phoenix, SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, Tucson Art Museum and the Eight Northern Pueblos Arts and Crafts Show. She has taken home ribbons for 1st and 2nd Place plus Honorable Mention from the Santa Fe Indian Market, 2nd and 3rd Place ribbons from Eight Northern Pueblos and 1st Place ribbons from The Fort.
Linda tells us she gets her inspiration from her mother and her favorite shapes to make are storyteller figures. Her favorite design is the step design and she uses it everywhere the clay tells her to. She also likes to talk to the clay when she's making a storyteller so she gets it just right.
