The name and work of Maria Martinez is recognized far and wide. Learning the art of pottery-making from her aunt, she began making pots with her husband Julian Martinez several years after they were married. They became well-known for their distinctive black-on-black ware, made by combining designs that had been highly burnished (and appeared glossy) with those that were slip-painted (and appeared matte). Maria continued to produce pottery after Julian’s death in 1943, collaborating with family members. This jar was made with her son, Popovi Da.
