A new book, “Cherokee Pottery: From the Hands of Our Elders,” has been published and was presented to members of the Tribal Council of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians on April 14. The book has been a collaborative effort between Western Carolina University’s Hunter Library, the Qualla Arts & Crafts Mutual and the Museum of the Cherokee Indian.

The book traces the designs and patterns of Cherokee pottery as they have developed over centuries and into contemporary times. The 160-page book, published in March, contains both archival and new images of the region, pots and potters. The book was written by Anna Fariello, associate research professor at Western Carolina University, who also authored “Cherokee Basketry” in 2009.
