Ware Name: Jemez Gray Ware

Characteristics noted for utility ware types known to have been produced in the Jemez region reflect trends similar to those produced in regions of the Rio Grande to the west. Jemez gray ware types are poorly defined but appear to be distinguished from contemporaneous types produced in adjacent regions by tempering material utilized such as large vitric tuff as well as some distinct igneous porphyry sources. In this document only two utility ware types are described, although this probably is more of a reflection of the absence of descriptions of utility ware rather than the lack of variability of pottery produced in the Jemez area.
