Storytellers
Cheyenne Jim Storyteller figureThe 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 peoples 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 the Cochiti pueblo created her first 'storyteller' figure. Cordero'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.

It is estimated that there are well over 200 Pueblo potters now creating storytellers. Every potter has their own special clay, technique, tools, and colors that are used to create their art. Most artists collect their own clay from the earth, and still use the traditional firing techniques that take place in the ground. No molds are used, they are entirely hand made, making each piece a special one of a kind work of art.
