ZUNI POTTERY - Marian Rodee and James Ostler

by Marian Rodee and James Ostler

Schiffer Publishing Ltd.

Soft cover, first edition, 1997. 92 pages, illustrated in color and black and white


From the Inside Cover:

The beauty of traditional Zuni pottery has intrigued native as well as non-native people for generations. Zuni Pottery presents some of the finest current all-hand-made pots and the talented young potters whose heritage has led them to this exciting art form.

Over the last few years, pottery-making at Zuni Pueblo has been stimulated by a well-organized tribal enterprise to purchase and market Zuni arts.  Zuni Pueblo, located 150 miles west of the Rio Grande Valley on the border of Arizona and New Mexico, is the Zuni people's homeland which they feel is the center of the world, equidistant from the four oceans which surround their known world.

Sixty clear and sensitive photographs, 17 in color, depict here some of the most creative designs of these talented artists. Readers learn the historical setting of the Pueblo and some of the symbolism which contribute to both the forms and the colorings. Families of potters are introduced through their work and the authors relate some of their personal experiences with these potters which help to build an appreciation for their fine work. The authors have built and transmitted here their belief that Zuni pottery is an ever-evolving art form of great significance in the culture of the Zuni people. The excitement they have felt for Zuni pots has helped to establish this art in this high place among the best of Native-American pottery today.
