Melinda, I was just reading about a Tewa Pueblo potter, Margaret Tafoya.
The Tafoya family makes large blackware storage pots in a style that is
particular to them. Sarafina Tafoya, Margaret's mother taught her and her
other sisters. Margaret in turn has taught her daughters. The men of the
family have also contributed especially recently, but the core of the
traditional style seems to come down through the women. The pots made for
art not storage these days and the traditional designs are altered by each
new potter. There is an enormous art book just on Margaret Tafoya and
another small book called SEVEN FAMILIES IN PUEBLO POTTERY. Good luck on
the project. Gina.
