“Clay Changes: Helen Cordero and the Pueblo Storyteller”
Barbara A. Babcock
Published in American Indian Art Magazine, vol. 8, no. 2, Spring 1986
Helen Cordero is recognized as the first pueblo potter to make a storyteller figurine. Barbara Babcock is the first author to document in detail Helen’s contribution and the development of the storyteller figurine in general. Babcock produced the first book detailing the storyteller figurine history.
This article in American Indian Art Magazine is a 10-page presentation of text and photographs of figurines and of Helen Cordero. It is a good analysis of the history and growth of the figurine phenomenon.
