Susan Folwell gathers and processes clay for her pots and fires them as her family has for generations. “I respect that tradition,” she says. “It’s important for me to show young people those ways. I’m lucky, though, that I come from a long line of innovators. There comes a point in the process where what you want to say is equally as important. The only constant is change, truly. You need to have self-expression and some sort of passion along with the tradition.”

Her recent innovations will be shown in Taos Light: Pueblo Perspectives beginning at King Galleries in Santa Fe, May 23. She has incorporated interpretations of paintings by the Taos Society of Artists but speaks in her own voice.
