JEMEZ POTTERY CAT STORYTELLER BY BONNIE FRAGUA. This wonderfully painted cat storyteller was handmade by Jemez Pueblo potter Bonnie Fragua and depicts a cat holding three kittens. Bonnie uses both the coil method and pinch method to create her pottery piece and as in traditional storytellers, Bonnie's storytellers have their mouths open. Storytellers represent the passing down of stories orally through Pueblo tradition.6 3/4 tall x 4 1/8 long x 3 1/4. Within the Jemez Pueblo there are many exceptional potters. The work is generally characterized by the buff and red clays used, and the range of styles and subjects. Storyteller, figures, sgrafitto designs, wedding vases, and melon pots are a few of their favorites. Before the arrival of the Spanish, Jemez was known for its traditional black-on-white ware, but production of this type of pottery died out in the early 18th century. There was a revival of Jemez pottery-making in the early 20th century inspired and influenced by Zia pottery designs, but it was not until the 1960s and 70s that a significant number of Jemez potters began producing high-quality work using traditional methods.
