Description

Handcrafted by Isleta Pueblo artist Robin Teller, this finely detailed, contemporary storyteller figurine depicts a mother and two children with Hopi hairstyles and basketry throughout. The Teller family of Isleta Pueblo carries on the tradition of making handmade pottery using ancestral methods.

The clays, tuffa, and pigments Robin uses in her pieces all come from different areas of Isleta Pueblo which have been sources for Isleta potters for generations. Utilizing the same gifts of Nature as her ancestors, Robin has created a unique piece to carry-on the traditions passed on to her. 

For centuries, Isleta artisans made pottery for utilitarian purposes and trade, but in the 20th century traditional pottery-making declined. For the Tellers, creating handmade pottery using the ancient ways is a family legacy.

Storyteller measures 3-1/2" tall x 4" long and 3" wide. Comes with certificate of authenticity.

At Shumakolowa Native Arts, we guarantee that your purchase is an original and authentic work handcrafted by Native American artists as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. We ask our artists to complete an extensive certification process, providing a CIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood) card and other documentation of their Native American heritage. Our team of experts carefully inspects every product to guarantee it is handcrafted using traditional, sustainable processes and natural materials of only the highest quality. We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft.
