Darrick Tsosie

Darrick Tsosie is a Native American potter from the Jemez Pueblo in New Mexico. He comes from a creative family of potters who specialize in making storytellers. Darrick began learning and making pottery as a child alongside his parents, Emily Tsosie (Fragua) and Leonard Tsosie.
Darrick uses classic potting techniques, but he has gone beyond the traditional storyteller subjects of seated men and women holding children.  His subjects range from various animals, to World War II Code Talkers, to children on horseback, and more. Darrick specializes in hand-coiled cat and dog storytellers, animal figurines and traditional storytellers. Darrick uses the natural clays and paints from the Jemez Pueblo reservation along with a traditional firing method in the creation of his unique artwork.
Darrick is an award-winning artist, who won his first blue ribbon from the prestigious Santa Fe Indian Market at the age of 10 years old and has continued to win ribbons from the Santa Fe Indian Market, Eiteljorge Indian Market, and other juried art shows. He also participates in the Autry Museum Indian Marketplace, Heard Museum Guild Fair & Market, Red Earth Indian Festival, Pueblo Grande Indian Art Market and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian Art Market. Darrick and his parents' work and family history are published in Southern Pueblo Pottery 2,000 Biographies, Storytellers and other Figurative Pottery, and Pueblo Family Pottery.
