|Long Description||The beautiful polished black and polychrome pottery of Santa Clara Pueblo is rivaled in design and execution only by that of its neighbor, San Ildefonso, among the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico. In recent years it has been sought by growing numbers of collectors and investor. |
Santa Clara Pottery Today combines extensive historical research with the interviews granted by three Santa Clara potters. During the interviews, the author recorded and photographed each step—from clay pit to market—in the making of contemporary Santa Clara pottery. Collecting and preparing the clay, making slips and paints, modeling various kinds of vessels, sanding, smoothing, slipping, polishing, decorating, firing—all are described and illustrated so thoroughly that the reader can experiment with the Santa Clara techniques himself if he wishes.
Drawing on a variety of published and unpublished sources, the author also provides background on the evolution of Santa Clara pottery and identifies changes that have occurred in materials and techniques.

The "Quit Application" menu item wasn't working so that got fixed. On the scan results screen, the quit menu item was only returning you to the startup screen. Now it actually quits. We also changed the label for that menu item from "Quit / Exit" to "Quit Application" to be more clear.
We added the ability to "Share" scanned data. If you can something and we can bring you to a product page, when you share you will be sharing a link to the product page. When you scan something and we don't know what to do with it (not a product barcode) we let you share the raw scan.
