Book Description:
This special pottery combines the traditions of Pueblo and Navajo artists with daring new interpretations by the modern generation. In 280 beautiful color photos, styles inherently connected with old beliefs and Southwest clay are shown to have fresh appearance in the hands of contemporary potters. The book has three easy to use sections: Part 1 presents vessels (bowls, plates, ollas, pitchers, and vases) arranged alphabetically by living potters in Acoma, Hopi, Jemez, Navajo, San Felipe, San Ildefonso, San Juan, Santa Ana, Zia and Zuni families. Part 2 presents figures (storytellers and charming animal figures) arranged alphabetically by artists. Part 3 is an unprecedented directory of artists (kachina carvers, jewelry makers, sculptors and potters), in a comprehensive alphabetical format which combines biographies with the makers' personal beliefs to help the reader interpret their work. The Directory also cross references the pottery shown in the book. This reference section alone makes the work indispensible for everyone concerned with contemporary Indian arts.
