Tonita (Toni) Roller is the daughter of Margaret Tafoya and the granddaughter of Sara Fina Tafoya, both of whom are considered the matriarchs of contemporary Santa Clara pottery. Toni's pottery is in the NAAR Collection, the Heard Museum Collection (Phoenix) and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (Santa Fe).

This melon jar is nicely made and finely finished. It was commissioned directly from the artist in 1990 and has been in the same collection ever since.
