This book combines information about how Maricopa pottery is made, and the heartwarming narrative of an Anglo woman's relationships with Maricopa potters. It is the only account of its kind about Maricopa pottery making. Mary Fernald learned Maricopa pottery making while working on her thesis in the early 1970s. This book interweaves the details of pottery making, from clay gathering to decoration and firing, with an outsider's experiences, frustrations, and rewards in the process.
