Leonard, Emily (Fragua) and Darrick Tsosie are a family of Native American potters from the Pueblo of Jemez located in New Mexico.

They gather and use the natural clays and paints from the surrounding area of the Jemez Pueblo reservation making their entire pottery making process completely natural.
