Product Information

8 3/4" x 3 "
Maria Martinez (1887-1980) is arguably the most famous potter that ever lived. Maria learned the art of pottery making from her aunt. Inspired by ancient pottery sherds left behind by her ancestors, Marie and her husband revived lost techniques to create some of the finest Pueblo pottery ever made. Maria is known the world over for the "gun-metal" finish she achieved with her blackware by her polishing techniques. She rose to a status and acclaim never before nor since achieved by any Pueblo potter. She worked with her husband Juan, who created all the painted designs until his death. Although she was known for her "gun-metal finish", this pot has a polychrome finish, which is unusual for her style. This is a one of a kind item which has been hand-coiled and hand-painted. 8 3/4" x 3"
