Artist Profile

Jeanette Vallo “Nah-Sde-Te”, known as “Jay” was born into the Acoma Pueblo 1959. She was inspired to continue the long lived tradition of working with pottery by observing her grandmother, Lita Garcia, at a very young age. She comes from a family of talented and creative pottery makers and painters. Jay is a naturally gifted painter and began painting many patterns at the age of 18.

Jay specializes in hand painting ceramic pottery. Jay’s family taught her the traditional methods of hand coiling pottery. However, hand painting is her favorite part of the pottery making process. She signs her pottery: Jay Vallo, Acoma. Jay is related to Brian Chino (brother), Corrine Chino (sister), Germaine Reed (sister) and Edna Chino (mother).
