One of the largest of the Northern pueblos, Santo Domingo is between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The pottery produced there is distinguished by its cream slip base and dark black geometric designs, with particular attention paid to the negative spaces. The local clay is quite elastic and lends itself easily to large forms. This piece presents the hallmarks of an elegant and solid figure, rolled-out rim, small neck and gracefully tapered bottom.
