Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marandiacute;a: The Potter of San Ildefonso is the story of Marandiacute;a Martandiacute;nez and her husband, Juliandaacute;n, who revived the ancient Pueblo craft of pottery-making and stimulated interest in Southwestern Pueblo pottery among both white people and Indians.

Marandiacute;a Montoya Martandiacute;nez, or Marie, as she sometimes signs her pottery, is a woman who has become in her own lifetime a legend. She lives in the pueblo of San Ildefonso, near Santa Fandeacute;, New Mexico, and although her life has been, as closely as she could make it, the normal life of a woman of her culture, her unusual qualities have set her apart and gained her fame throughout the world.

Through her mastery of pottery-making, Marandiacute;a brought economic gain to her family and her village. However, distressing problems accompanied success and fame. Liquor ultimately wrecked Julandiacute;an. There was dissension within the pueblo. And there was the succession of admiring white people who invaded her home and interrupted her work. Not least, in Marandiacute;a view, was the departure of her own children from many Pueblo customs.

Inextricably woven into the story of Marandiacute;a is the story of the pottery of the Southwestern Pueblos, a native craft that has become a national art interest, including the development of the unique black-on-black ware by Juliandaacute;n, the first of which is reproduced among the illustrations.

Margaret Lefrancandrsquo;s many accurate drawings of actual pieces of pottery provide an almost complete documentary history of the craft and show some of the finest examples of Marandiacute;aandrsquo;s art. Her skilled pen has also interpreted faithfully the spirit of Marandiacute;a, the Pueblo Indians, and the pottery.
