About Maria Martinez

Maria Martinez, known as a matriarch of Native American pottery, grew up watching her aunt, Nicolassa and other Santa Clara Pueblo potters. After her husband's death in 1943, Maria worked with her daughter-in-law, Santana Martinez. Maria would craft the pieces and Santana would paint them.

These pieces are very desirable, and part of many private and museum collections.
