Of Tewa heritage of the San Ildefonso Pueblo in the Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico, Maria Martinez became world renowned for her black on black pottery.  "This process involved burying the unfinished pot in a fire in the ground, covered tightly with sheep or cow dung for fuel.  The amount of air reaching the pottery determined whether the clay remained red or instead turned completely black." (Gibson/Michnovicz, 91) 

Her pottery was first exhibited beyond her pueblo at (showing 500 of 21152 characters).
