About the Author:
Dwight P Lanmon, research associate at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and the School of American Research, is former CEO and director of the Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum.
From the Inside Flap:
The potters of Zuni Pueblo, in western New Mexico, are recognized for their superbly functional and aesthetically unique polychrome ceramic vessels. The authors present an authoritative and comprehensive study of 700 years of Zuni pottery, drawing upon 1200 examples from incomparable collections acquired at Zuni by expeditions dispatched by the Smithsonian Institution, as well as from museums across the country. The authors use ground breaking original research (which has become the standard for subsequent research teams) to study the evolution of the pottery styles of the Zuni Pueblo. Every individual type and style of pottery made at Zuni is discussed and illustrated chronologically and in detail. The book offers a history of the Zuni Pueblos, an introduction to Ashiwi (Zuni) pottery, as well as a chronological history of the craft. 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.
