Blue Corn

Native American, (1920–1999)


Also known by the name Crucita Gonzalez Calabaza, Blue Corn was a San Ildefonso Pueblo potter, who learned pottery making from her grandmother. Along with María and Juan Martinez, she is a key figure in revitalizing lost San Ildefonso Pueblo ceramic techniques. While the Martinezes gained fame for their blackware, Blue Corn reintroduced San Ildefonso polychrome techniques.

Blue Corn attended the Santa Fe Indian School. She is the recipient of the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts Lifetime Achievement Award and the Governor’s Award of New Mexico.
