In our three weeks in New Mexico, traveling with book co-conspirators John and Brenda Blom, we bought a lot of pieces and moved an equal number to new homes. When you check the site, you'll see more than 20 new pieces from Hopi, Laguna, Ohkay Owinge, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara and Tesuque, and on the Others page, from Isleta, Navajo, Santa Ana and a new line for Nambe. We were busy, meeting important new artists and touching base with old friends, and in the case of three of the new pieces, adding important large ones. The new pieces include quite a few big names and some impressive historic ones.
Now we're trying to reassemble our thoughts and get ready for Marin. When we get to Marin in February, we'll have a lot of wonderful things making their first public appearance. Hope we see you there!
Make sure you see our latest book. After 20 years, we updated Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni into an expanded Second Edition with all new photographs and text. It's a lot bigger than the First Edition, and people tell us it's a lot better.
NOTE: We encourage you to make it to any upcoming shows we announce. Sometimes pots get to the show before we they get to the site. Even though we update pretty much weekly, every so often a wonderful piece (examples: a rare 19th-century Mojave or O'odham figurine, a Hopi seed jar later attributed to Nampeyo and a bargain-priced Lucy Lewis) sells at a show before we post it.
WHERE TO CATCH UP WITH US NEXT
SANTA FE WAS INTENSE, AND THE RESULTS ARE ON THE SITE.
NEXT, IT'S ON TO MARIN IN FEBRUARY.
And a wistful bit of nostalgia. Our son Mark took this picture of Carol at the 2018 Marin Show just two hours before she left us. She lived a wonderful life, and Summerhouse Indian Art exists because of her.
