“This is definitely a great book for information on Cochiti pottery, both historic and modern.  The best part of the book is the artists’ biographies.  The information is accurate and insightful with great photography.  The earlier sections on historic Monos figures (essays written by Robert Gallegos and Virgil Ortiz) is a thoguhtful look at this art form and it’s continued impact on Cochiti pottery.  Definitely a must for anyone interested in Cochiti pottery, past, present or future!”  Charles S. King
