Anthony Lovato

     Anthony Lovato, son of notable lapidary artist Mary Coriz Lovato, and grandson of Santiago Leo Coriz, was born on July 5, 1958. He is the fifth generation from the Pueblo of Santa Domingo.  Anthony’s unique tufa-cast and fabricated jewelry bridges both traditional and contemporary styles. It also conveys great presence, while reflecting his family’s creative legacy as well as Santo Domingo’s religious heritage.

    “I really come from a traditional jewelry family,” says Anthony. His mother, Mary, raised Anthony and his four brothers to become accomplished silversmiths. Anthony also learned from his father, Sedelio F. Lovato, a metalworker who did both casting and inlay work. Most of his learning came from his grandfather, Leo Coriz, who was skilled in tufa-casting.

     Anthony Lovato is known for his fantastic jewelry and metalwork formed by tufa-casting. Anthony makes pendants, bracelets, necklaces, and even large hollow-ware jars using this method. He has received numerous awards over the years for his work. Anthony stresses quality in his work and comments that he strives to “make it perfect and right the first time”.

    His brother, Isaac Coriz, and his sister, Mary Frances Coriz, are also a well-known artists.   And his sons, Cordell Pajarito and Joel Pajarito are also accomplished silversmiths.
