As Anthony has explained, “Zia Pueblo has a long and beautiful history of producing some of the most exquisite pottery before the 20th century. In the periods before 1900, Zia pottery exhibited intricate and magnificent designs such as those during the Trios period. Jars from Zia Pueblo dating from 1820 to 1860 have been designated with the Trios Polychrome classification. Designs towards the end of this period began to show simplification of style. They retained the double line capped spirals without including some of the other embellishments” This new piece from Elizabeth Medina is a re-interpretation of an old Zia design. Marcellus said,” The geometric designs were used when the People migrated down from Mesa Verde to Chaco Canyon. “ It is wonderfully painted.
