Synopsis: Tammy Garcia, Form Without Boundaries, is a collection of images portraying Tammy?s extraordinary talent. She is regarded as the foremost Native American potter in the world today and in this magnificent coffeetable book provides glimpses of her sculpture and jewelry. Today, collectors buy her work by lottery as her pieces have become so sought after and her production for the public market is limited. The book tells of her heritage as a fourth generation Santa Clara pueblo potter and what inspires this beautiful, young, soft-spoken artisan. The narrative also introduces the layperson to pottery and the Native American culture. It is written by acknowledged experts in the field of Native American culture, art and collections. The book is a spectacular result of collaboration between an artist and those who are committed to preserving a culture through museums, collections and writing. This is the most dramatic, most beautiful,coffeetable book that will be available for the fall in 2003.
