Specializing in Native American Crafts Since 1916

Dorothy Torivio


Artist Profile

Dorothy Torivio was born in 1946 into the Acoma Pueblo. She is one of Acoma’s finest potters. She travels all over the United States demonstrating her skills. Dorothy has been making abstract designs on pottery since 1974.

Dorothy specializes in Acoma hand coiled abstract pottery. In 1982, Dorothy got the idea to paint a design and repeat the design on the shape of the pot. She basically combines the traditional pottery with her own penchant for the kinetic image and thus creates an eye catching swirl design containing both radiating and spiral motion. “I love the travel and expressing myself through my pottery. It creates inspiration for the younger artists out there,” Dorothy said. Among the many relatives, Sandra Victorino (niece) is one following Dorothy’s footsteps.
