Book SynopsisMaria Martinez is the renowned late potter of San Ildefonso Pueblo in New Mexico whose pots were often given by President Lyndon Johnson to visiting heads of state. This book tells, in simple terms and photographs, how she produced her famous polished blackware. Maria's pots are in museums and private collections all over the world. Hazel Hyde originally composed a picture story similar to the current book about Maria Martinez in 1930 for the students in her private school in New York City to teach them about pottery making among American Southwestern Indians.
