Known and appreciated for the variety of expressions on the faces of her storyteller children, these delightful Storytellers by Jemez Pueblo artist Joyce Lucero are one-of-a-kind works of art. Shaped from locally gathered clay, fired over an outdoor kiln, and hand-painted with natural pigments, each of these Joyce Lucero Storytellers holds two children. Unusually, the seated mothers extend their moccasin-clad legs out from and to the side of their traditional dresses. 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.
