During the interviews, the author recorded and photographed each step—from clay pit to market—in the making of contemporary Santa Clara pottery.

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.
