Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico

Coiled ceramic, slip-painted design

Mr. and Mrs. Berry B. Brooks Collection


Manufacturing pottery is a tradition that has been passed down through generations of the Acoma people. The pots are known for their very thin walls, beautiful geometric designs and black-white-red slip paintings. This jar features a traditional design and shape though its small size indicates that it may have been made for sale to tourists.
