11th printing, 1991; tiny indents on front cover.

The beautiful polished black and polychrome pottery of Santa Clara Pueblo is rivaled in design and execution only by that of its neighbor, San Ildefonso, among the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico. In recent years it has been sought by growing numbers of collectors and investors. The book combines extensive historical research with interviews granted by three Santa Clara potters. During the interviews, the author recorded and photographed each step -- from clay pit to market -- in the making of contemporary Santa Clara pottery. Collecting and preparing the clay, making slips and paints, modeling various kinds of vessels, sanding, smoothing, slipping, polishing, decorating, firing -- all are described and illustrated with 64 figures and 23 plates.
