Flo and Lee Vallo have been making and painting pottery for over 20 years. She was taught by her mother and grandmother, and her mother-in-law has encouraged her to explore and expand her craftsmanship. The couple are fourth-generation potters and painters.  With this exploration of pottery, they opened a small Pottery business on the Acoma Reservation.  Tribal members and community members come to purchase their pottery for cultural and traditional use. They recently traveled with the New Mexico Tourism Bureau to Chicago to promote tourism to New Mexico. They were the featured pueblo pottery artists to promote the Native American culture in New Mexico.
