about

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.
Nora Naranjo-Morse lives and works in Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico. Her work has been widely exhibited and was included in "A Separate Vision," a major show mounted by the Museum of Northern Arizona and appearing at the Smithsonian Institution.

Editorial Reviews

"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
