Item description for Hopi & Pueblo Tiles: An Illustrated History by Barton Wright Kim Messier...

The appealing, affordable, Native American art of "flat pots."

The Hopi people of northern Arizona and their Pueblo relatives in New Mexico are famous for their fine pottery jars, bowls, and figures. But they also have a less well-known tradition: the making of unique, handcrafted clay tiles, beginning with ancient altarpieces and progressing to one-of-a-kind contemporary art tiles prized by collectors. Recently a few Navajo potters have also started to experiment with this special form---an attractive, affordable, and highly collectible Native American art. Profusely illustrated, with a foreword by the noted anthropologist and artist Barton Wright, Hopi and Pueblo Tiles is the first full-length study of these charming "flat pots." 80 color & b/w photos.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hopi & Pueblo Tiles: An Illustrated History?

Trail Blazers!  Aug 21, 2007
This book is the first book specifically about Hopi & Pueblo Tile ever written. It is well researched and easy to read. I believe it would have been better with footnotes and specific acknowledgements but after talking to the authors, I found that the publisher limited the amount and type of material. I hope the authors continue their research and produce more information on this fascinating subject.
