Shaped By Her Hands: Potter Maria Martinez

Out of stock
The most renowned Native American Indian potter of her time, Maria Povika Martinez learned pottery as a child under the guiding hands of her ko-oo, her aunt. She grew up to discover a new firing technique that turned her pots black and shiny, and made them—and Maria—famous. This inspiring story of family and creativity illuminates how Maria's belief in sharing her love of clay brought success and joy from her New Mexico Pueblo to people all across the country.

More about Maria Povika Martinez. Note about the Tewa people and San Ildefonso Pueblo. Authors’ notes. Selected sources. Full-color illustrations.
