Nathan Youngblood was taught pottery making by his grandmother Margaret Tafoya, the matriarch of Santa Clara pottery. Nathan is widely recognized as one of the leading artists in Santa Clara today and his work has been given numerous awards and is included in many museum collections.

Nathan is a superb artist. As he has developed his artistry over the years, while still keeping to the Santa Clara tradition of incising developed by Margaret Tafoya, Nathan has added his own stylistic interpretations. Note the curvilinear geometric designs and his use of matte slip which give emphasis to the abstract design. The polishing of the surface of the jar along with the precise incising are beautiful.
