The author covers the historic period and the contemporary pottery tradition at Zuni Pueblo.  The study of potters in the modern Zuni Pueblo draws connections with the older tradition of scholarship.  The author observed how elements of a larger culture take shape piece by piece, pot by pot, brushstroke by brushstroke, influenced by values shared by parents, children, and kin as well as by choices, sometimes idiosyncratic and creative, made by the artist themselves when they press their thumbs into a lump of clay or dip a brush into a dish of paint.  The author worked with the Nahohai family of Zuni potters.
