New Mexico is proud of Maria Martinez.  Maria Montoya Poveka Martinez -  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."

Lucy Lewis learned to make pottery by watching other Acoma women, through observation and experimentation, rather than formal art training. Her work was first influenced by the sacred pots she saw in the kivas, which had traditional Acoma designs--parrots, flowers, and rainbows. Early in her career, Lewis, like many other Acoma women, frequently sold works to tourists along the highway

Maria Martinez.  I saw a video of her making her pottery in the Santa Fe Museum of Indian Arts & Culture.  It was so interesting to see the techniques used, and it was amazing to see her work and to see how much additional work goes into the firing of the pottery when it is done.
