A very generous donor to The Keshi Foundation contributed two Cochiti storytellers to us for our website. The funds will go to the work the foundation is presently doing in Zuni. While we are not experts in Rio Grande pottery, we have had help at pricing the pieces from those who are. Traditionally, Pueblo men were the storytellers and Helen Cordero, the first person known for making storytellers in Cochiti, always made male figurines. Damacia Cordero, Josephine’s famous mother (1905 - 1989) taught her daughter the art of making figurines and Josephine has become one of the foremost Cochiti potters in this genre. This storyteller has eight children snuggled up with him. It measures 10 3/8 inches and 74 inches deep. Signed in pencil. $1050. No Tax. Shipping charges will be added if necessary.
