Hubert Candelario is from the Pueblo of San Felipe. Born November 2,1965 to Angelina and Phillip Candelario. Hubert is a self-taught artist who began making pottery in the late ‘80s and began to perfect his work throughout years of hard work.

He was inspired by the skill and works of Maria Martinez. Hubert gathers and prepares his clay the traditional way but prefers to kiln fire for an even golden color. He is well known for his carved, sculptural, swirl melon pots. His work has evolved with the technical skills he has learned through trial and error to produce the fine micaceous pottery he now makes.
