Shaped By Her Hands: Potter Maria Martinez

The most renowned Native American Indian potter of her time, Maria Povika Martinez learned pottery as a child under the guiding hands of her ko-ōo, her aunt, learning traditional ways that her family had practiced for generations. While other children played with toys, she made pots! As an adult, Maria grew up to discover a new firing technique that turned her pots black and shiny, and made them ― and her ― famous.

In this gorgeous picture book from the She Made History series, young readers will learn how this innovative artist combined old and new to create something beautiful. This inspiring story of family and creativity illuminates how Maria's belief in sharing her love of clay brought success and joy from her New Mexico Pueblo to people all across the country.
