Description - Pueblo Pottery Families by Lillian Peaster

The 17 Southwest Pueblos along the Rio Grande, and in the rising mesas and bluffs to the west, have a long tradition of beautiful pottery vessels for practical and ceremonial use. In this book, more than 554 modern Southwest Pueblo potters are introduced from 102 families with 160 color photographs of them and their meticulous work. Traditional and new forms are displayed to demonstrate the evolving nature of their work. A new value reference reflects the present pottery market.
