The most beautiful and amazing coil pottery with fabulous photos and lovely story to match. Technical but warm.
These are great potters that are carrying on the Lewis legend - I wish all Indigenous arts were documented so well. My library would be full.

This is an excellent book about one of America's greatest Indian potters with wonderful photos of her work, her home and family life at Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico. I purchased the book "used", but it was in pristine condition. Great deal! Love the book!

Lucy Lewis was one of the great American potters and this book is a beautiful tribute to her and her family, many of whom continued in her footsteps. The photos are lush and plentiful and the stories from family are delightful. A truly terrific book.
