Since Pueblo pottery has continued to command great respect (and high prices) over the last 20 years, it is appropriate for Dillingham to revisit the subject of his now-classic Seven Families in Pueblo Pottery (1974) in this expanded and updated sequel. The text covers families from Acoma, Zia, Cochiti, Santo Domingo, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, and the Hopi mesas. Like the best books on Indian arts, the emphasis is on the potters' own descriptions of their work. Profiled with a juxtaposition of photos, quotes, and images of specific pieces, the artists speak movingly about their training, design ideas, and influential family instructors, thus making their inspirations come alive for the reader. Dillingham, wqho died recently, was a noted ceramicist, and his understanding of the craft process contributed greatly to the elicitation of the valuable insights found within this work. Highly recommended.Paula A. Baxter, NYPL
