HILDA TENORIO CORIZ (1949–2007)
KEWA POLYCHROME CANOE 1999
Hilda Coriz belonged to a formidable pottery family. Her brother Robert Tenorio is a superstar, her sister Paulita Pacheco (1943–2008) became recognized as a leading Kewa potter, and her sister Mary Edna Tenorio, who works with Robert, contributes to the family portfolio. Paulita's son Andrew Pacheco achieved a celebrity of his own and her daughter Rose Pacheco is gaining recognition, as is Hilda's daughter, Ione Coriz. Hilda herself, working alongside her husband Arther (1948–1998) and on her own, ranked right behind Robert as an important Kewa pottery artist.
