About The Polychrome Pottery Bowl with Lug Handles

Before 1930 we are told potters from Santo Domingo, Cochiti, Santa Ana and Zia left the bottoms of bowls and jars unslipped and smoothed to a dull red. This bowl has a dull red bottom.

About Santo Domingo

The potters of Santo Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico are known for well-formed pottery decorated with dramatic stylized flora, often in combination with geometric designs.

Santo Domingo Pueblo also hosts jewelers with expertise in creating the finest heishi as well as shell overlay work. In the early years, some overlay work combined traditional turquoise, jet and shell with unorthodox modern materials such as poker chips and phonograph records.
