Jemez Storyteller
Description: The time-honored Indian Pueblo pottery tradition of working with clay and telling stories has merged into a modern art form of “STORYTELLER” pottery dolls. The art of making clay effigies is as ancient as the Anasazi people who inhabited the deserts of New Mexico many centuries ago. In recent history, it is the Cochiti pueblo potters who are known for clay effigies depicting many different aspects of their everyday life. Yet, it was not until 1964 that Helen Cordero of Cochiti pueblo created her first “Storyteller” figure. Codero’s Storyteller model was her grandfather who gathered his grandchildren around him to play the drum, sing them songs, and tell stories of their Indian heritage and traditions. 6" X 6" X 7 1/2".
