Judy Menefee grew up finding shards of Mimbres pottery around her hometown of Silver City, the geometric animal designs stark against creamy white backgrounds. “What a gift to see shards while hiking, and feel that the Mimbres people were a part of my life in some way,” Menefee says.

Her porcelain ceramic bowls and jewelry, available in museum shops across the state, pay homage to those ancient artisans (mimbresjudy.com).
