Known for the variety of expressions on the faces of her storyteller children, this charming Joyce Lucero Moccasin with Babies by Jemez Pueblo artist Joyce Lucero is a one-of-a-kind work of art. Shaped from locally gathered clay, fired over an outdoor kiln, and hand-painted with natural pigments, this Moccasin with Babies features one dog stretched out over the foot, while two babies either cling to the side or hang out over the top. Handcrafted in New Mexico. Signed by the artist. Handcrafted in New Mexico.
Though Native American tribes have been making dolls for hundreds of years, storyteller dolls were first made by Cochiti artist Helen Cordero in 1964. Soon other artists began to emulate her open-mouthed storyteller dolls, always holding children or animals. Each artist's clay dolls reflect their personal style and tribal heritage. Now one of the most collectible forms of clay art, storyteller dolls—many from the Jemez Pueblo—are well represented in the collections of our National Museum of the American Indian.
