I am so pleased with the continued excellence in Madeline’s work. She is working on shapes, forms, sizes, and storytelling. Each piece is so carefully designed. This new jar is superior. It is called “Feast Day Preparations” as she relates the events with her grandmother and the children and grandchildren as they prepare for their big celebration. They are getting their belts, and headdresses, and tying the laces. She told me how they get the belt on as tight as possible. Laughing, she said “beauty is pain!” Feast day is such a wonderful day for the Pueblos and the families involved. To see it depicted on clay is marvelous. Hand coiled, traditionally fired outdoors, slipped and carved – this is a real beauty.
