About The Artists

Artist Name: Southwestern Pottery Demonstration

Jason Ebelacker – Santa Clara Pueblo

Jason has been quietly accepting the time honored Tafoya family tradition of large and exceptional traditional pottery forms. Jason is a son of Richard Ebelacker, a grandson of Virginia Ebelacker and a great-grandson of Margaret Tafoya.  Jason learned to make pottery from his father Richard, and has been making pieces for the past ten years. His stone polishing is beautiful (and a large task on his large pieces); the deep carving includes both traditional designs and his own. Jason uses only traditional methods of hand-coil construction, shaping, polishing and carving each work before they are traditionally fired.  Jason has won awards at Santa Fe Indian Market and his work can be found in museums and books on Santa Clara pottery.
