"In 1930 Legoria learned the art of pottery making from her grandmother. Legoria's first work consisted mostly of clever, small animal figurines, which she molded with her fingers.  Lions, bears, birds and turtles are design forms which are much in evidence in Tewa mythology.  These little fetish-like ceramics proved to be extremely popular, and Legoria sold many of them to the tourists who came to the Pueblo. Legoria decided to exhibit her work.  At her first exhibit in 1940 she won a blue ribbon for a plain polished bowl.  This was at the Indian Market at Santa Fe. Legoria has received many awards for pottery making." Reference: Pueblo Indian Pottery: 750 Artist Biographies by Gregory Schaaf.
