THE STORYTELLER:

The making of storytellers began in the mid 1960's when Helen Cordero of the Cochiti Pueblo began making figurines. She began with nativity scenes and singing mothers. When a pottery collector asked her to make a singing mother with multiple children, Helen remembered her grandfather, a master storyteller. Her first piece had five grandchildren on her grandfather's figure. That was the beginning. Storytellers have become popular collectors' pieces, and now many potters from various pueblos are producing beautiful storytellers.
