Lucy M. Lewis: American Indian Potter.

Lucy Lewis, one of America's most treasured potters, died on March 11, 1992, in what was believed to be her ninety-fifth year. This monograph sensitively portrays this remarkable woman, and celebrates her life and work in sensitive prose and stunning color photography. Over 220 color and 120 black-and-white photographs provide entry into the world of her Acoma traditions. As if that isn't enough, we are treated to page after page of her jars and pots. We see rainbird, feather patterns, fineline, zigzag and countless other design variations of traditional Acoma symbols, as applied to a seemingly unending series of pottery forms. Treat yourself and your students to this beautiful book.
