Pottery of Santa Ana Pueblo
Pottery of Santa Ana Pueblo by Francis H. Harlow
Book DescriptionThe small village of Santa Ana Pueblo in north-central New Mexico has for centuries made distinctive pottery for domestic and ritual use. In this book, the authors relate new ideas about the evolution of pottery styles made at Santa Ana and compare these styles with those found elsewhere in the Pueblo ceramic tradition. In particular, this richly visual study describes the chronological sequence of forms and designs based on evidence not heretofore available. The book analyses the sequence from the earliest date, circa 1760, when positive evidence of Santa Ana origin can be identified, through the end of pottery making for local use about 1925 through various revivals to the present time. The pottery of Santa Ana Pueblo exemplifies the fine artistic achievement that has brought Pueblo ceramics worldwide acclaim. In this study, Pueblo pottery authority Francis H Harlow, along with anthropologist Duane Anderson and historian Dwight P Lanmon, provides an original and groundbreaking investigation into the origins and evolution of this pueblo's exemplary pottery. The result furnishes criteria for dating any vessel that comes to hand. A chapter on the recognised potters of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries recounts efforts to keep pottery traditions alive for future working potters.
