Michael Naranjo


Michael Naranjo grew up in Santa Clara pueblo and Taos. He learned to work with clay from his mother, who was a potter. In 1968, he was blinded in Vietnam from a grenade and lost most of the use in his right hand. Shortly after recovery, Michael began working with clay and still continues to be a sculptor today. He always chooses a dark patina, as this is the way he sees his works of art. In 1976, he was presented with the Governor's Award for Sculpture by Gov. Jerry Apodaca. In 1983, he was granted a papl audience at the Vatican. In 1996, he was nominated by Pres. Bill Clinton to serve on the Board of Trustees of the Institute of American Indian and Alaska Native Culture and Arts Development. He is in numerous public and private collections across the US. He exhibits internationally as well and gives lectures and shares his story with others.
