Along with her brother Joseph Lonewolf, Grace Medicine Flower was one of the first Pueblo potters to use sgraffito as a technique when decorating her traditionally made pots. She is the daughter of Camilio Tafoya and is the niece of Margaret Tafoya, both of whom are recognized for their artistry in working clay. Grace's pots have a delicacy of design and a beautiful, almost lyrical rhythm.

This example of her early work is very complex in design, a challenging task given the very small surface area in which Grace had to work. She accomplished it beautifully. The texture adds to the design. 

Grace Medicine Flower has been honored by many museums and collectors as well as having won many ceremonials. She visited the Jackie Kennedy-Onasis at the White house and her works are in museums throughout the world.
