Long DescriptionFor almost two thousand years, the pottery made by the Indians of America's Southwest has remained a vital art. Today, more than twenty Pueblos and tribes make pottery within the tradition, each with a distinctive style. Many of those local styles have persisted for hundreds of years. In prehistory, beautiful pieces had high trade value, and the finest contemporary pieces command prices appropriate to fine art of any type. Potters like Nampeyo, Maria Martinez and Juan Quezada achieved worldwide fame. Yet despite its history and the skill of its artists, Southwestern Indian pottery remains surprisingly easy to collect. This book introduces the art from its beginnings to the present and displays examples that describe how America's first important art form grew into one of the world's most accessible treasures.

The site has been updating over the past few months and now we are done with the big upgrade!

You have gotten to see some of the cosmetic changes as we went along. Many of these could be moved to the live production server without causing an outage.

Over the past few days, users have been accessing the site using our backup server while our main server was fully upgraded. It was a long process taking months of preperation and design but all the hard work is done now.

All in all it was a very hectic few months getting everything ready but it is quite a joy to see the improves performance.

We still have some work to do. The backup server has to be upgraded now to match the production server for one thing. We want to add more fields to the database so we can provide more information about products than we could in the past. But this work won't impact the site in an adverse way. We can easily add new fields without any interuption to your access to the site.

We have performed a great deal of testing but if we missed something by chance please contact us and we will get it fixed right away.
