Acoma and Lagina Pottery.

The development of pottery making at these two pueblos is traced in this well-illustrated overview of changing materials, designs and techniques. Dillingham, a widely exhibited and collected potter, explores the meaning of pottery and potters in pueblo life. In addition to the many large photographs - many in color - of the richly designed polychrome pitchers and pots, other color photos show the coil-building process, design and surface application and traditional firing techniques. In addition to a comprehensive history of the development of this superb hand-built pottery, the author also discusses the state of today's Native-American art market. This lavish and interesting book is recommended as a resource for all schools with ceramics programs, and for classrooms, middle school and above, with interest in America's multicultural heritage.
