Summary note
The book by anthropologist Mascelani presents a socio-anthropology study as well as documentating the art and tradition of popular ceramic art in the Valley of Jequitinhonha (Minas Gerais), one of the poorest and most remote parts of Brazil. The author examines the life and painted ceramic production of 68 artisans from the rural municipalities of Turmalina, Minas Novas, Caraí, Ponto dos Volantes, Araçuaí, Joaíma and Taiobeiras. Artists include Noemisa Batista, Isabel Mendes da Cunha, Ariosvaldo Perera Dutra, Ulisses Pereira Chaves, Ulisses Mendes, Josefa Alves Reis (Zefa), Maria Lira Marques, Maria AssunÉÀo Ribeiro, Joao Pereira, Olinta Teixeira (Dida) and Ana Ba amongst others. The author also questions the established differences between artists and artisans, how traditions are updated in the present context and the relationship between rural and urban.
