Description

Gila Polychrome was made in central and southeastern Arizona and southwest New Mexico between about 1300 to 1450 AD. For reasons not yet fully understood, this pottery was made using designs and technologies from the northern Southwest and materials largely form the southern Southwest.

 

This pot was authentically made using local collected native clays, organic paint, formed using the coil and scrape method and fired in an outdoor mesquite wood fire. It is not an exact replica of an existing pot but it is similar to many pots of this type. This jar was slightly under-oxidized in the firing resulting in a dingy appearance, this is not unusual in prehistoric pottery of this kind but also makes the pot somewhat less desirable, this is reflected in a lower cost for this pot. 6 1/4″ x 6″
