Zia Pottery

North of the Jemez river and west of Albuquerque is the pueblo of Zia. Famous for their large storage jars and huge dough bowls, Zia pottery is distinct from its neighboring pueblos because it is made with clay that fires to a rich red tone and comes in a variety of styles including polychrome on a white slip and polychrome on a orange slip. Favorite designs at Zia include an undulating rainbow band, large polychrome birds, and abstracted floral designs.
