TRANSCRIPTION

47 - Pueblo Indian Women Making Pottery

Pottery making is an art the Pueblo Indians inherited directly from their ancestors, the Prehistoric Cliff Dwellers. A basket or piece of old pottery is used as a foundation form. The clay is worked into strips, which are coiled spirally upward to form the new pottery vessel. The lay is smoothed down by the fingers as shown in this illustration. After drying it is ready for decorations and then firing.
