Talking with the clay: the art of Pueblo pottery
Stephen Trimble conveys the beauty and fine craftsmanship of Pueblo Indian pottery and shows how pottery making is closely connected to the Pueblos' beliefs, their ties to the land, their role in the modern economic world, and their feelings of identity. With over 75 photographs, Talking with the Clay illustrates all the major pottery types, from the glittering micaceous of Taos and Picuris to the red and gold polychromes of Hopi.Stephen Trimble has become a primary narrator of the story of the Southwestern Indians through his books Our Voices, Our Land; The People: Indians of the American Southwest; The Village of Blue Stone; and an annual calendar based on The People. He has lived in the Four Corners states all his life and makes his home in Salt Lake City with his wife and two children.
