Born of Fire: The Life and Pottery of Margaret Tafoya by Charles S. King "Margaret Tafoya (1904- 2001), the matriarch of Santa Clara Pueblo potters, is regarded as one of the great masters of Pueblo ceramics, known for her trademark large black polished wares decorated with traditional imagery of bear paws, water serpents, rain clouds, and other symbols of survival. This art history dates the pottery of Margaret Tafoy and traces the artists' collaborative relationships. As biography that relies on the author's extensive interviews with Tafoya fmaily members, it features 75 exemplary pieces along with family photographs from the unpublished personal collections of the descendants. Charles King, a noted Pueblo ceramic expert, interviewed many of the living descendants of Margaret Tafoya, several of whom are recognized artists in their own right, including daughters Mary Archuleta, Toni Roller, LuAnn Tafoya, and Shirley Tafoya and grandchildren Nancy Youngblood and Nathan Youngblood, along with others well-known to collectors and those enthusiastic about Pueblo pttery." --jacket cover Hardcover, 160 pages
