The Pottery of Zuni Pueblo


Francis H. Harlow
Dwight P. Lanmon

The potters of Zuni Pueblo, in western New Mexico, are recognized for their superbly functional and aesthetically unique polychrome ceramic vessels. The authors examine fine and rare examples of pots—many of which are from private collections—in terms of forms and designs from the ancient antecedents of Zuni pottery to the contemporary work being produced today. The definitive treatment of the extraordinarily popular Zuni Pueblo's long and complex ceramic tradition, this book sets the gold standard and will be an indispensable reference for researchers, collectors, Native arts enthusiasts, archaeologists, and visitors to the Southwest.
