The craft of pottery making is handed down from generation to generation among the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico and Arizona. This book traces the developments in style and technique in the pottery produced by seven Pueblo families. Represented are the Chino and Lewis families (Acoma), the Nampeyos (Hopi), the Gutierrez and Tafoya families (Santa Clara), and the Gonzales and Martinez families (San Ildefonso). The photographs, in color and Black-and-white, represent a nearly complete chronological sequence of the potter's art within each family. The text traces the history of each family. Statements by each potter enable the reader to see the development of the craft through the eyes of the artists themselves. Key technical and historical terms are defined in a short glossary.
