Book Description

Feb. 1 1992 Sun Tracks (Book 20)
The clay sculptures of Nora Naranjo-Morse have been critically hailed for both their humor and their blending of traditional and modern styles. Now with Mud Woman she calls on her equal talent as a poet, juxtaposing clay and words to capture not only the essence of the creative process but also the satisfactions and complications of what it means to be a Pueblo Indian woman in the late twentieth century.

Review

"All of these poems and ceramics testify to the artist's willingness to question, to experiment, to take chances, and to grow. . . . We come away from this book with a deep appreciation for the making and knowing that lie behind these ceramic and poetic creations." —Native Peoples"Naranjo-Morse's poems . . . have a power arising from the immediacy of heartfelt experience. . . . This volume certainly walks in beauty with a sculpted balance between its two artistic media." —Western American Literature"Mud Woman is a delightful and entertaining effort exploring the wonder of life and the joy of living in a unique and powerful way." —Chronicle-Journal/Times-News (Canada)"Both moving and delightful. . . . A fine and welcome addition to any collection that includes Native American literature" —Booklist"A wonderfully gentle and imaginative text, brought to life by a skillful artist in an uncommon dialogue of pottery and poems." —American Book Review

I had the great privilege of attending a seminar by this author last weekend. Her work in clay and her words come from a profound connection with the earth and her heritage. She shares these messages openly. Mud Women talks about messages in a funny, heartwarming manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect gift book for a women friend Feb. 25 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Nora Naranjo-Morse introduces her book "Mud Women" by
telling us that, "In the Tewa language, there is no word for art. There is however, the concept for an artful life, filled with inspiration and fueled by labor and thoughtful approach."

In this beautiful little book Nora Naranjo-Morse molds her poetry into clay and her clay into poetry. Blending the two creates a book that speaks to each of us as women. Her work ranges from reverently serious to delightfully humorous as she uses poetry and sculpture to masterfully connect the past with the present, family and community with the modern world.

As a potter, this book hit a chord with me. So many of the author's emotions and experiences mirrored my own. Mud Woman loves her work and the environment.
