Settling in to Taos, New Mexico in the mid 80’s, Pozzi Franzetti created some of the most loved sculpture available here. 

Over the next thirty years Pozzi created ‘Jo-Mama’s Pot Pies', but later what she was best known for was ‘Franzetti Metal Works’ which became a sensation. 

In the late 80's Pozzi also took the time to teach welding classes to Taos youngsters at her ‘art camp’ in a small corner of Metric Motors. From the stories I've been told they were in awe of her.


The Earthquake Detectors (or Hurricane Detectors), are flat figures on a ‘spring’ which rock when the ground shakes or the wind blows. These are some of the most coveted garden ornaments around, rarely available, prices for these have ballooned to $200. and up for a small one. 

We have priced everything currently in stock quite fairly and much lower than what is available from any other sources. 

At one point Franzetti metal works were the number one seller through 

Robert Redford’s Sundance Catalogue. 

She even sold her work through the Home Shopping Network. 

She was always selling at area craft fairs, where her booth was the most popular. 


Pozzi Franzetti made art that you could live with, which often had a functionality to it along with a fun lighthearted sense of whimsy. 

We call them Rusty-Gold and purchase them for our shop whenever possible. 

We’ve even sold the ones out of our home to visitors who’ve insisted that we share these treasures. Normally we are lucky to have 1 or 2 of Pozzi Franzetti sculptures, at this time we are honored to have many available. 

It's a Pozzi-Palozza!


Pozzi Franzetti created quite a unique niche in the world of Taos Art, her works are everywhere around Taos and across the country.

There may be imitators out there but what we've selected are the last of the best.


There are light switch covers and wall sculptures of petroglyphs, dancing figures and anything that struck her fancy. 

For years a Franzetti light switch cover was the perfect gift for any new home owner, they brought magic to a room. Light-switch covers could be inspired by Native American Petroglyphs, sports figures, pigs, rams, cats, or neighing horses.

The Light Switch and Outlet Covers are our number one selling item from our shop, please check with us for current inventory.

Somewhere off the High Road to Taos a farm has used Franzetti 'blanks' in an imaginative way for fencing.


A few photos of the Pozzi Franzetti Studio Yard Production
At one time Pozzi was producing more artwork than anyone in Taos
The studio yard is now virtually empty

Here are 2 examples of a stamped Signature and occasionally she'll have added a signed engraving
