Ware Name: Northeast Keres District Polychrome Ware

Posted by Dean Wilson 2014

Pottery forms that began to be produced in the Northeast Keres district in the late eighteenth century, after the demise if glaze ware production at the Northeast Keres Pueblos in Santo Domingo and Cochiti area reflect influences of Northern Tewa potters to the north who had long produced pottery decorated with orgnaic paint. Pottery exhbiting similar decorations in organic paint that was produced at Santo Domingo and Cochiti Pueblo can only be distinguished from contemporaneous pottery at the Tewa Pueblos to the north by slight differences in paste and surface finishing.
