From the Inside Flap:
Regarded as one of the great masters of Pueblo ceramics, Margaret Tafoya (1904-2001) is known for her trademark large black polished ceramics, decorated with traditional imagery of rain clouds, water serpents, bear paws, and other symbols. An award-winning artist, she was recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts, and a National Heritage Fellowship. In Born of Fire, Charles S. King has written an insightful biography of the artisan, considered the matriarch of Santa Clara Pueblo potters. Drawing from archival materials, King provides new details on Tafoya, discussing her artistic vision and connection to ancestral heritage and cultural values. King has interviewed several Tafoya descendants carrying on her legacy, including recognized potters Toni Roller, Nancy and Nathan Youngblood, and LuAnn Tafoya.Seventy-five exemplary examples of Tafoya’s work are presented in full color—many of the pots documented for the first time. King has dated the pieces, demonstrating the progression of Tafoya’s artistry. Companion to an exhibition at the Carnegie Museum featuring the John Krena collection of Margaret Tafoya pottery to open in the Fall of 2008, Born of Fire will be the standard for those interested in Tafoya’s life and work.
