Ware Name: Pecos Valley Glaze Ware

The placement of Pecos Glaze Polychrome into the Pecos Valley tradition is based on observations that the distribution of pottery exhibiting characteristics attributed to this type seems to be limited to Pecos Pueblo and adjacent areas (Mera 1933). This is the only glaze pottery type, thus far included outside the descriptions of types defined for the Middle and Southern Rio Grande areas even though glaze wares are known to have been produced over a very wide area that includes areas associated with other regional traditions discussed in this document. Although for now this type is included in the Pecos Valley tradition, this may change
